With the unifying theme of VISION GATE, multimedia artworks by eight groups of artists are exhibited online and at Tokyo’s Haneda and Narita Airports, with the aim of promoting the appeals of Japanese culture and sharing it with the world.

About

Under the supervision of Paola Antonelli, curator at MoMA, this exhibit seeks to explore the concept of “vision” from past to future, and its role as the foundation of Japanese culture.

At Tokyo’s gateway airports of Haneda and Narita six videos by six different artists usher travellers into Japan’s extraordinarily rich and eclectic culture. Broadcast in synchronized sequence along the path leading from each arrival gate into a new world, they each highlight a different aspect of Japan’s creativity and reality, arranging distinct styles and contexts in surprising juxtapositions.

Also, not to be missed at Haneda airport is an installation by sound artist and designer Yuri SUZUKI and musical artist and composer HOSOI Miyu. Keeping the human voice at the core of their proposal, HOSOI and SUZUKI distilled the sounds of the Japanese language –– "hiragana" sounds, which consist of 46 base characters with 5 singular vowels, 40 consonant-vowel unions and 1 singular consonant – and created a unique composition in which the sound emanates from a choir of dozens of standing horns, that are conversing with each other like people waiting for friends and relatives in the Arrival Hall of an airport.

* Please note, the exhibition is currently scheduled to run until 5 September 2021, with the possibility of extension. Please visit the official website for the most up-to-date opening dates and details.
