16th Japan Media Arts Festival

Posted in National Art Center, Places by tokyobling on February 22, 2013

This years Japan Media Arts Festival takes place between the 16th and the 24th of February, centered on the National Art Center in Tokyo’s Roppongi district it’s is a must see for anyone interested in audio visual art, multimedia, high technology, manga and animation. I wish I could have gone to all the screenings of the many movies that were given awards this year, some of them looks very promising. If you have time, I really recommend this art show, free entrance and loads of fun and cutting edge technology merged with a typically playful Japanese sense of art! The English information site is here, unfortunately not as detailed as you’d wish, but with a bit of Google-fu and cut and paste you should be able to find more of anything you are particularly interested in! Most of the art presented is Japanese but there is a fair bit of shows from other countries as well, all excellent. This year’s festival is one of the best I have seen so far.
