As part of the Tokyo Culture Creation Project, this exhibition focuses on how expressions in contemporary art and design can inspire each other and society. It spotlights 21 groups of artists, designers and architects from around the globe, all of whom create works inspired by the information-saturated age we live in.
The artists approach established ideas with new and unusual ways of thinking — their aim is to create an interactive experience that does not rely on the visual perception alone. By engaging the audience, the artists hope they will also question the accepted norms of artistic traditions; Oct. 3-Jan. 19 (2014).
