'Open Possibilities: There is Not Only One Neat Way to Imagine Our Futures'

NTT INTERCOMMUNICATION CENTER (ICC)

by Yukari Tanaka

Jan. 11-March 1

Over the past couple of decades, the influence of the worldwide spread of information has raised questions and concerns about how globalization could lead to a homogenized world.

Like any other area of the world, Asia represents diverse cultures, histories and religions. This exhibition, co-curated with Rizaldi Riar — an Indonesian artist and researcher currently based in Hong Kong — focuses on Japanese and East-Asian media art and explores how distinct characteristics of different Asian countries can open up more possibilities for a future rich in diversity.

Featured artists include Tanatchai Bandasak from Thailand, Rei Hamaya, Etsuko Ichihara and yang02 from Japan, Zai Tang from Singapore and WAFT-Lab from Indonesia.
