This event has ended.
Having used the Internet as material for their works since its spread into the mainstream in the 1990s, net artist duo exonemo (Kensuke Sembo and Yae Akaiwa) has been a driving force in the realm of media art with their humorous approach and fresh perspective.
This exhibition reconstructs representative works of the New York-based artists from their beginnings to the present, including pieces acquired for the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum’s collection, and presents a new take on the charm of their works. This large-scale exhibition of Exonemo’s works, equivalent to a retrospective exhibition at a public museum, is the first in Japan and a valuable viewing opportunity.
By taking a close look at the situation surrounding the art world since the advent of the Internet, viewers will reconsider the history of media and explore new possibilities for expression today.
