SIGGRAPH Asia 2018: Forcefields




Tokyo, Japan


Dec. 4-7, 2018

Art Show Overview:

SIGGRAPH Asia 2018 Art Gallery will showcase media artworks that embody artistic visions and creative applications of new media for aesthetic achievement. The Art Gallery program will present a curated exhibition to engage, challenge and entertain the conference audience, with media artworks via open call as well as by invitation.

In response to the main conference theme CROSSOVER, two artefacts have been identified to stimulate the art gallery exhibition in 2018 as two interrelated organisms in a communication system, namely Candle TV (1975) by Nam June Paik and Mannbi (1981), a mask used in classical Japanese musical drama Noh, by Ayako Iwai. Artists are invited to submit artworks based on their interpretations of the relations between the chosen artefacts, i.e. the mediating agents. These interpretations will inform the curatorial framework of the exhibition, and ultimately be selected into a collection of artworks that reflect the states mediated by the chosen artefacts, including but not limited to: Dialogue, Overlap, Interference, Congruence, Rejection and Island.
