poster for "Tokyo Art Meeting: Transformation" Exhibition

This event has ended.

People have always been fascinated by images of transformation involving the human body. What does it mean for human beings to transform themselves into “something other than human”? Transformations into animals, imaginary creatures, robots, and cyborgs... Transformations by means of plastic surgery, gene manipulation, and organ transplants... Along with ecology, a return to the primitive, and research into new human characteristics for future survival, this has recently become a hot topic in contemporary art. Produced in collaboration with anthropologist Shinichi Nakazawa, this exhibition will bring a new perspective to contemporary art, with “art expansions” as its keyword. As a cross-disciplinary endeavor, it will traverse fields to present historical artworks, subculture, and archive materials together with contemporary art.
