poster for Taro Okamoto and the development of Media Art: featuring works by Katsuhiro Yamaguchi

Ends in 5 days

Taro Okamoto was a solitary artist who refused to succumb to the trends of the Japanese art scene. This said, he provided tremendous support to young artists who had become united in the process of seeking a new phase of artistic development, beyond their means as novices. Meanwhile, Katsuhiro Yamaguchi, an artist influenced by Okamoto’s artistic spirit and creations, successfully established his own depictions in a similar style to those of his associate. This exhibition, in addition to displaying Okamoto and Yamaguchi’s work, is set to introduce the works of ten contemporary artists who have played active roles in creating media art inspired by the great efforts of their mentors. It features some of the earliest pieces of media art, which originated as post-war Japanese contemporary art, as well as recently created works that expand into a new realm of artistic expression, seeking fusion between art and newfound, modern technology.
