Bill Viola: Hatsu-Yume (First Dream)

Bill Viola: Hatsu-Yume (First Dream)
TOKYO  •  Mori Arts Center  •  Ongoing
Bill Viola lived in Japan for nearly a year and half in the 1980s where, in addition to studying Zen Buddhism and traditional performing arts such as Noh theater, he gained access to some of the most advanced color video equipment at the time. His experience of Japan had a lasting influence on his artistic development. The exhibition title is taken from Hatsu-Yume (First Dream), a 56-minute video woven around his observations of and reactions to Japanese culture and landscape. Revisiting Viola's thoughts on Japan in today's context, the artist and leading critics will introduce special screenings of Hatsu-Yume during the period of the exhibition.
