The development of video art, which first appeared in the 1960s, has progressed in leaps and bounds alongside innovations in video technology. As the number of video installations combining multiple media also grows, under the “MAM Screen” program single-channel video works from around the world will be screened daily over the period of the relevant exhibition. This program enables visitors to view works on video in concentrated fashion, and at their leisure.
“MAM Screen 004” will be held as a screening program of single-channel video works in conjunction with “The Universe and Art: Princess Kaguya, Leonardo da Vinci, teamLab.” This exhibition aims to help us get an overview of the modern human society through the universe and reexamine the Earth from more of a “cosmic” viewpoint, which could be the key to understanding the geopolitics, gender issues, as well as the meaning of the word “planet” and “alien.” This is a must-see program where the cosmologies captured by each one of the artists, with his/her own viewpoint, are vividly spread on the screen.
