Video Art Weekend at Mori Art Museum Tokyo August 2008

Posted by artradar on July 8, 2008

JAPAN MUSEUM VIDEO ART SHOW August 1-3 2008 An exciting three days of video art works from Japan, China, Taiwan, Vietnam and Thailand is promised by the Mori Art Museum.

As a part of the ASIAN Summer In Roppongi Hills celebration of Roppongi Hills’ 5th anniversary, the Mori Art Museum will hold a special screening of video art from Asia. “In-Between: Asian Video Art Weekend” will be held on the first weekend of August.

The use of moving pictures in artistic expression gained popularity in the 1970s with the development of video technology. Since then, each new technological breakthrough has seen moving pictures utilized in new and exciting ways.

In recent days, video art comes in the forms of long and short films, documentaries, home-videos, road movies, interviews and animations.

The “In-Between” event will consist of screenings of single-channel works by 11 artists from Japan, China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand. Exploring a range of dichotomies relevant to Asia’s rapidly hybridizing cultures – life and death, reality and fantasy, memory and truth, local and global, conscious and subconscious, old and new – the works illuminate problems and issues that have arisen, and also depict visions of new futures unlike the past.

Participating Artists:
Cao Fei (China), Chen Chieh-Jen (Taiwan), Kondoh Akino (Japan),
Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba (Vietnam), Sherman Ong (Malaysia), Peng Hung-Chih (Taiwan), Araya Rasdjarmreamsook (Thailand), Sawa Hiraki (Japan), Sun Xun (China),
Tanaka Koki (Japan), Yuan Goang-Ming (Taiwan)

 Dates:  1 August (Fri) – 3 August (Sun) 2008
