poster for "Space for Your Future" Exhibition

This event has ended.

The personalization of information, diversification of values, and a variety of networks characterize the 21st century. The genre crossovers and creative direction of the past few years evoke images of the beginning of the twentieth century when academic studies unified, aiming for a utopia as symbolized by the ideas of Buckminster Fuller. A major difference is that our physical world is faced with an even more complex situations and the crossing over and synergy of genres such as biotechnology and genetic engineering has actually risen as much-needed survival tactics.

This exhibition will feature visual creations in a variety of fields by 34 artists from 13 countries. The "space" in the title "Space for your Future" refers to space as an environment that encompasses oneself and one's exterior, as well as purely physical space. The selected architects, designers, artists pursue their creative activities by juggling multiple expressive techniques and methods based on a unique vision, not unlike DNA programming. This exhibition will be a cultural manifesto transmitted from Tokyo, city of multidisciplinary creativity.
