A exposição SPACE FOR YOUR FUTURE: Recombining the DNA of Art and Design vai inaugurar no dia 27 de Outubro no Museu de Arte Contemporânea em Tóquio (MOT) e estará patente ao público até 20 de Janeiro de 2008. O conceito da exposição é muito interessante e a estratégia de comunicação e organização das obras também. O texto que se segue consta da newsletter da e-flux.
“SPACE FOR YOUR FUTURE brings together a group of thirty-four Japanese and international contemporary artists, architects and designers in an exhibition which asks them to respond to the current and future conditions of creative production in the 21st Century; a moment in which shared visions of the future are no longer possible while the eclecticism and quotations of the postmodern world are fading into the past. A participatory exhibition that visitors can experience through physical involvement (…). Technological advances are offering new freedoms and flexibility to enable creators to engage in multidisciplinary practices without being governed by historical and hierarchical programs. This open receptiveness to information can be seen as a characteristic of many young Japanese creators. The participants' range of production varies from art and architecture to fashion and graphics, product design, advertising, film and video. Like scientists programming DNA, each fuses the techniques and methods of multiple fields to produce highly creative works according to their own personal vision of the future. Through a large selection of installations, graphics, proposals and objects -- of which fifteen are new commissions, and many shown in Japan for the first time -- the exhibition attempts to reconstruct physical space as a conceptual idea which can allow us a glimpse into future ways of living more closely fitted to individual sensibilities and ways of thinking. Offering insights into emerging art and design trends that are defining our times, not only aesthetically, but also as conscientious responses to the shifting world around us”.
