  • Listen to the Sound of the Earth Turning
    Our Wellbeing since the Pandemic

    29 June – 6 November 2022
    Mori Art Museum


     

    The Covid-19 pandemic since 2020 has had no small impact on our ways of living, feeling and thinking.

    There’s a pervasive sense that our well-being is at stake now, more than ever.

    This show will invite us to contemplate, through the lens of contemporary art, on the question of our well-being in the post-pandemic era.

    Listen to the Sound of the Earth Turning

    The show features 16 artists* from Japan and abroad, along with their works in various media – installations, sculptures, videos, photographs, and paintings.

    Exploring themes of life and death, the family, spirituality, individuals and society, these works offer a way to expand our imagination of how to live well after the coronavirus pandemic.

    The title of the show, “Listen to the Sound of the Earth Turning” is a quote from Yoko Ono‘s instruction art entitled “EARTH PIECE: Listen to the sound of the earth turning” (1963/1999).
