About

“MAM Screen 003,” the third edition of the video screening series, features video works selected by the four co-curators of the “Roppongi Crossing 2016: My Body, Your Voice” that runs concurrently. The exhibition attempts to examine Japan from a diversity of perspectives, focusing on landscapes of Japan as seen by overseas artists. Fragments of Japanese landscapes captured through their lenses include the effects of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, wartime memories, and neighborhood scenery.
Opportunities for artists to work internationally are growing, and many of the artists participating in “Roppongi Crossing,” our triennial exhibition series that focuses on Japan’s art scene, are active outside Japan. Today, it is by no means an easy task to delimit the “Japan” of “Japan’ s art scene.” The perspectives of the overseas artists may help us discover aspects of Japan not normally noticed by people who call Japan their home.
