About “MAM Screen”

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 is an initiative independent of the exhibition framework, to enable visitors to view works on video in concentrated fashion, and at their leisure.



MAM Screen 003: Crossing Visions - Japanese Landscapes Seen from Outside



“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.
