Fea­tur­ing over 120 art­works, sci­en­tific arte­facts and manuscripts, Artscience Mu­seum’s The Uni­verse and Art ex­hi­bi­tion melds Eastern and Western philoso­phies, an­cient and con­tem­po­rary art, sci­ence and re­li­gion to ex­plore hu­man­ity’s fas­ci­na­tion with the uni­verse and what lies be­yond. Jointly cu­rated by Mori Art Mu­seum and Artscience Mu­seum, the ex­hibit starts with sa­cred, re­li­gious arte­facts linked to Bud­dhism, Hin­duism and Jain­ism, and con­tin­ues with mas­ter­works by the most renowned Re­nais­sance astronomers, Galileo, Ke­pler, New­ton and Coper­ni­cus – on show for the first time in Sin­ga­pore. Ad­di­tion­ally, view­ers can ex­pect to see con­tem­po­rary art­works by Björn Dahlem, Mariko Mori, Pierre Huyghe, Andreas Gursky, Wolf­gang Till­mans and Hiroshi Sugi­moto that ex­plore new sci­en­tific think­ing.
