[Temporary Closed] Open Possibilities: There is not only one neat way to imagine our futures


Temporary Closing

In compliance with Japan’s national health authorities, NTT InterCommunication Center [ICC] have made the decision to close its facility from February 29 to March 1, as a measure against the further spreading of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Japan.

We apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment this may cause to those who had hoped to visit on both dates.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

As information technology and globalization continue to transform our society, what kind of vision of the future can we imagine?

Held in Singapore and Tokyo from December 2019 to March 2020, this exhibition is an attempt to reinterpret the singular image of the future that has been cultivated by modernization, scientific and technological progress, and instead present multiple possibilities for our future. With a focus on new media art in Asia, the featured artists use technology as shared tools or platforms to explore mythology, ritual, and the relationship between mankind and machine. Within Asia, the forms and processes by which modern technology was accepted differ greatly. These artistic practices reveal remarkable creativity and rich sensibilities.

Through different perspectives of artists on technology, this exhibition endeavors to broaden our vision of a linear future into futures with open possibilities.

Date: January 11–March 1, 2020
Venue: NTT InterCommunication Center [ICC] Gallery A
Hours: 11:00am–6:00pm (Admission until 30 minutes before closing)
