Garden of Unearthly Delights: Works by Ikeda, Tenmyouya & teamLab

October 10, 2014 – January 11, 2015
11 – 6PM

A monster tsunami uproots a city. Modern tough guys lock samurai-style in battle. Candy-colored streams of animals and flowers hyperpixilate. These dramatic visual moments are among many to be encountered this fall in our new exhibition Garden of Unearthly Delights. The featured artists Manabu Ikeda (b. 1973, Saga Prefecture), Hisashi Tenmyouya (b. 1966, Tokyo) and the art and technology collection teamLab (est. 2001) are today’s takami, or master artisans, taking pride in the execution of dense and precisely detailed works requiring time and contemplation to grasp. Their creative imaginations travel through time, finding inspiration in medieval Buddhist paintings and contemporary anime and manga. Come stroll through their fantastical visions.
