Muography Art Exhibition of Kansai University with Selected Artists - Expressing Advanced Science with Art

From December 3, 2018, the Museum of Kanbunkan at Kansai University's Senriyama campus is running the "Muography Art Exhibition of Kansai University with Selected Artists - Expressing Advanced Science with Art."

Muography is a technology that enables researches to visualize the interior of large objects such as volcanoes, pyramids, and ancient mounds with muons, a highly permeable elementary particle, as if they were transparent.

The Muography Art Project of Kansai University and the International Cooperative Research Organization for Muography of the University of Tokyo (MUOGRAPHIX) are collaborating on this exhibition to present muographic artworks through various media such as paintings, digital art, ceramic art, and Kyo-kanokoshibori.

This exhibition runs until Saturday, January 12, 2019. It is closed on Sundays and public holidays as well as the period from Wednesday, December 26th to Saturday, January 5. Opening times 10:00-16:00.

Also, on Saturday December 8, Professor Takefumi Hayashi, Associate Professor Tsuyoshi Iura and visiting professor Kenji Sumiya gave lectures on muography art at the Museum of Kanbunkan in Kansai University. It was a fruitful series of lectures, with each speaker outlining their projects, explaining each work, and supplementing each segment with comments from the artists.
