"Tokyo Art Meeting 3: Art and Music — Search for New Synesthesia"

Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo


By TOMOHIRO OSAKI
Staff writer

For some, art and music are inseparable. Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky, for example, created artworks inspired by synesthesia, while Swiss-German painter Paul Klee visualized the world of music. Many musicians, too, such as composer John Milton Cage, created works that appealed both visually and aurally.

Advances in technology have allowed both artists and musicians to experiment and develop expressions of their art forms even further. For this exhibition, musician Ryuichi Sakamoto acted as the general advisor, collaborating with Shiro Takatani of art collective Dumb Type. A collaborative work by the two artists will also be on display; Oct. 27-Feb. 3.

Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; (03) 5245-4111; 4-1-1 Miyoshi, Koto-ku, Tokyo; Kiyosumi-shirakawa Station, Hanzomon Line. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. ¥1,100. Closed Mon. (except Dec. 24, Jan. 14), Dec. 25, Dec. 28-Jan. 1, Jan. 15. www.mot-art-museum.jp.
