Escher X nendo | Between Two Worlds is a groundbreaking exhibition that features the work of Dutch artist M.C. Escher in dialogue with the work of acclaimed Japanese design studio nendo. This summer blockbuster exhibition creates a visionary and immersive exhibition that seamlessly presents the worlds of both Escher and nendo.

Celebrated as a master of optical illusion, Escher created some of the most iconic images of the twentieth century. Escher’s unique artistic vision is traced through 160 prints and drawings and presented within a ground-breaking exhibition environment by nendo. Drawn from the world’s largest collection of Escher’s work in the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, this expansive exhibition covers the full span of the artist’s career, from 1916 through to his final work produced in 1969.

As one of the leading design studios in the world, nendo draw upon their unique design approach to transcend tradition; by manipulating geometry, space and perception they create a deeply immersive exhibition experience inspired by M.C. Escher.
