ren- Encounter between Science and Art 2018
再邂逅する科学と美術の試み, 2018 東京-第1回 Kavli IPMU

The Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU) is proud to present “ren- Encounter between Science and Art 2018” from March 9 (Fri) to 25 (Sun) at KAMATA_SOKO (Ota ward, Tokyo).

Since 2015, the Kavli IPMU has been hosting the Artist in Residence (AIR) program where artists stay in the institute for about a month, during which they interact with scientists regularly inside a world-leading research institute and work on their new work. To date, the Artist in Residence (AIR) program has welcomed three artists – a painter, a media artist, and a sculptor.

This exhibition will showcase their work that has been inspired by AIR.
