Meetup Description: Ryoji Ikeda + / -
Ryoji Ikeda has been a proactive musician who creates very intense electric noise music. This is how I knew him up until I saw an advertisement of this retrospective of his. I own some music by him, and have seen his live performance; however, I did not know that he is active as a visual artist. As a musician, his works are not accessible to everyone. He is obviously not a pop star. For those who are familiar with music by The Chemical Brothers or even by Aphex Twin, his music can be challenging. Regardless, he is a creative sound maker who has been seeking the possibility of music in his own way.
Since I am not familiar with his visual or installation works, I can not write about it here, but the photographs of his installations displayed in the web page for the exhibition look interesting. I would like to experience them in person. Since this meet up event is scheduled during the Golden week, and since I posted this event in the very last minutes, many of you already have a plan. Yet, if you have time to spear and don't mind to check out the exhibition with me, please come to MOT on this coming Saturday.
Location: Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (MOT)
Time: 2:00 PM
Admission Fee: ?1,000
MOT is showing their permanent collection through a series of exhibitions. Currently, the exhibition is called "MOT, Field of Dreams." After seeing Ikeda's show, I would like to check this out.
For those who went to Roppogi Art Night, we can see Giant Torayan agian. Let's see if he will blow fire again!!!
Chat session after the show
As usual, let's have a chat session after the show. When we meet up before the exhibition, let's decide where we go after the show.
Finally, some of us will go to Tsukiji to have monja and okonomiyaki after this meet up event. If you have time and appetite for the Japanese "soul food," please join us.
