Key Visual by Ayumu Nagamatsu “dialog()” is a generative art exhibition connecting four cities: Tokyo, Taipei, Seoul, and Beijing.

At the Tokyo venue, in addition to introducing Kazuki Takakura’s works as a Tokyo-only exhibition, a variety of special projects will be held, including a documentary screening and meet-up event by Bright Moments, and a live performance by Den-Onken at the closing event. Masu. We also plan to hold official programs such as talk sessions and workshops with invited guests.

Please note. Statement Art that is generated by computer algorithms that began in the 1960s eventually came to be called generative art, and has formed an iconic scene in the rise of NFT in 2021. “Generative” means “to generate,” and is characterized by the fact that works are created by computer algorithms without human intervention. There should be great potential there, but due to the impact of the advent of NFT and generation AI, it is sometimes only used as a method to mass produce patterns, or only for momentary enjoyment with the moment of generation peaking interest. There are also some notable trends. Furthermore, many generative art works in recent years have been released via online platforms as
two-dimensional works written in JavaScript and running on a web browser. If the basis of generative art lies in computer algorithms, its possibilities should be diverse and not limited to the web. Contemporary art is sometimes talked about as if it were some kind of game whose rules were formed by the West. Similarly, in generative art, amid the evolution of technology that has developed mainly in the West, artists do not unconsciously choose to use existing tools and create within the framework of a prepared environment. Is not it? This exhibition is an effort to reconsider the uniqueness of generative art and expand its possibilities. To this end, we aim to present forms of generative art based on our own interpretations while reconsidering the unique cultures of those of us who live in Asia. This exhibition is also an opportunity to learn more deeply about the cultures of Asian countries. For example, we can see that Japan has a unique culture in games, audiovisuals, video, VR space, etc., but we also realize that we are surprisingly unaware of the similarities and differences between Japan and neighboring Asian countries. As you continue to communicate with other countries, you will be troubled by language barriers and realize that you lack understanding of cultural backgrounds. This exhibition, which is being sent from Asia to the world, can be said to have great significance in itself by trying to learn about each other’s cultures through art. Against this
background, this exhibition, named “dialog(),” aims to transcend language barriers and cultural background differences and deepen mutual understanding by repeatedly engaging in dialogue centered around art. I would like to take this as an opportunity. The exhibition brings together works by a total of 40 artists from each city, and will travel to four cities under the same curation. We hope that as a result of this effort to explore mutual differences and uniqueness, we will be able to present to the world a form of generative art that reflects the characteristics of Asian culture. Let’s start by running dialog(). ■Artist

[Image 5:×240.jpg] This exhibition was planned with the aim of highlighting Asian characteristics in an art scene that was originally heavily influenced by the West. However, as I continued to communicate with members from each city, I realized that our understanding of each other’s cultures was surprisingly shallow, and that it was difficult to communicate deeply in different languages, and I realized once again the importance of such dialogue. I realized it. We live in an era where we can connect with artists and communities around the world through social media, but I feel that for deeper mutual understanding we need repeated dialogue and opportunities to create something together. We are very happy to be able to jointly hold this exhibition in four cities in Asia with the cooperation of many people. It is our sincere hope that through this exhibition, dialogue through art will become a new form of cultural exchange, helping to build richer mutual understanding and the future. dialog() Executive Committee NEORT, Generative Art Promotion Foundation, Volume Dao, AEON STUDIO, N Pole Art
