Japan Media Arts Festival 20th Anniversary Exhibition—Power to Change
Feature Exhibition “New Styles, New Artists: The Contemporary Trend of Artists”

Outline

The Japan Media Arts Festival 20th Anniversary Exhibition Executive Committee presents the “Japan Media Arts Festival 20th Anniversary Exhibition—Power to Change” from October 15 (Sat.), to November 6 (Sun.), 2016 at 3331 Arts Chiyoda and other locations. This year, to mark the festival’s 20th anniversary, with the keyword “change,” four past Jury members have chosen Award-winning Works and Jury Selections from previous Japan Media Arts Festivals to be exhibited or screened, exemplifying the diverse expressive forms and changing nature of Media Arts (Japanese: Media Geijutsu) over that period.

We have the pleasure to announce that an exhibition: “New Styles, New Artists: The Contemporary Trend of Artists” will be held at our satellite venue located at the NTT InterCommunication Center [ICC] as one of our feature exhibitions.
In recent years, we have witnessed the establishment of a new trend in media artists’ style of activity; they freely traverse the fields of art, design, and entertainment, sometimes engaging in works commissioned by clients, and at other times expressing themselves through creative activities in the arts field. The emergence of new artists who engage in such expansive realms of activity of self-expression has been increasing in prominence since the late 1990s, which coincides with the beginning of the annual Japan Media Arts Festival. In this exhibition, we will give a selective introduction to the works of art by these new creators who we believe are embarking on these new formats of artistic expression.


Date: October 15–November 6, 2016
Venue: NTT InterCommunication Center [ICC] Gallery A
Hours: 11:00am–6:00pm

Supervisor: SEKIGUCHI Atsuhito (Visual Artist / Professor, Aichi University of Arts / Former Japan Media Arts Festival Jury Member (Art Division))

Takram “Scenes Unseen”

“Scenes Unseen” is an exhibition that Takram had during London Design Festival in September 2016. It was presented as an experimental test lab, where 10 new installations challenged assumptions about the role of design and technology. All 7 installations selected this time, including product design, big data visualization, Moon exploration and alternative communication technology, transcend the boundary between hardware and software, and real and fiction.
