MUDEC - Museo delle Culture
The exhibition ‘Rainbow: colours and wonders between myths, arts and science‘ takes place in the spaces on the first floor of Mudec. After a complete immersion in the colours of the rainbow thanks to a site-specific installation by artist Cory Arcangel in the spaces of the “cloud”, the exhibition continues in the Focus Rooms.
The exhibits, from the museum’s collections but also the result of international loans, allow the visitor to explore the multiple meanings of the rainbow and learn about its origins and reflections in contemporary culture. An expression of different languages from anthropology to biology, from art to science, the exhibits illustrate ancient myths and new values of the iris between ancient and contemporary.
The exhibition is part of an interdisciplinary project involving the Milan Natural History Museum and the Milan Planetarium, with a calendar full of events and initiatives linked to the rainbow theme.
