“ICC has been the only museum-scale exhibition space in Tokyo specialising in new media, art and technology and sound art and is run by telecommunications giant NTT. Rumours have been circulating around the arts scene that this may be the final exhibition at ICC, and that the space may close soon. ‘Possible Futures: Japanese postwar art and technology’ opened on October 21 and runs through to December 25. It is an ambitious and well researched exhibition covering important works and movements in art and technology in Japan since the 1950s. Several seminal works have been recreated specially for the exhibition and the curators have gathered a wealth of archival materials as well as interviews with now ageing computer and technology artists.” Continue reading on his site.
