Since its inauguration in March 2010, its viewers have grown over 10,000 per program and the total number of viewers has reached 45 million. The mastermind of DOMMUNE, Naohiro UKAWA is an omnidirectional artist known for his extremely wide range of creative activities as a video artist, graphic designer, VJ, writer, college professor, and “Genzai (current)” artist among many others. DOMMUNE’s latest and ongoing project, THE 100 JAPANESE CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS features 100 leading artists whose distinctions are at the forefront and towards the next generation of Japanese contemporary art, and broadcasts live talk programs that thoroughly cover these artists’ personal histories and artistic perspectives. In the satellite studio created in the gallery, live-streaming itself is conducted as performance art that is viewable anywhere in the world. After live-streaming, the show is archived and brought into the gallery’s white cube and made public exclusively as a part of the exhibition, along with the artists’ original artworks.
