Ends in 25 days

*The Artizon Museum will reopen on Tuesday, June 23, 2020, after its temporary closure to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

The homecoming exhibition of “Cosmo Eggs,” first exhibited at the Japan Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale International Art Exhibition. The Japan Pavilion, International Art Exhibition-La Biennale di Venezia, was built in 1956 with funding provided by Shojiro Ishibashi, founder of the Ishibashi Foundation. It is thanks to this historical connection that the Artizon Museum has decided to present the homecoming exhibition of the Japan Pavilion’s Venice Biennale show. Curated by Hiroyuki Hattori, “Cosmo-Eggs” is realized by specialists from distinct fields – an artist, a composer, an anthropologist and an architect – and explores themes of coexistence and symbiosis between human and nonhuman entities. The homecoming exhibition will feature a reorganization of the original “Cosmo Eggs” Biennale show in accordance with the exhibition space at the Artizon Museum. Adding the original installation, in which video, music, words and space exist and co-exist as individual elements, the homecoming exhibition will also present new items such as additional documents and archives.

The museum will not be open in the evenings for the forseeable future.
