Exhibition: Video from Tokyo to Fukui and Kyoto, MoMA New York

The exhibition consists of sixteen videotapes by sixteen Japanese artists whose work is representative of video art currently being produced in Japan. The artists represented utilize the medium for its portability, immediacy of image, and plasticity. Most work with the small-format (one-half- or three-quarter-inch) portable video camera and recording deck, which are easily transported from location to location and are ideal for spontaneous documentation. The show goes on to twelve other museums in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan. With: Nobuhiro Kawanaka and Hakudo Kobayashi.
