Our Ecology will feature four chapters of diverse expression courtesy of an impressive lineup of international artists, from historical works to a number commissioned especially for the exhibition.

Above all, the title Our Ecology: Toward a Planetary Living asks who we are, and to whom the Earth’s environment belongs, and the exhibition urges us to think about environmental problems and other issues not only from an anthropocentric perspective, but also by looking at the Earth’s multiple ecologies from a broader, more comprehensive standpoint. This sustainable exhibition, designed to reduce the use of transport to a minimum by reusing and recycling as many resources as possible, will make the Mori Art Museum a place to contemplate how contemporary art and artists have to date engaged with environmental issues, and how they can continue to do so in the future.
