Japan Media Arts Festival, established in 1997, is a unique and original festival from Japan, which includes different categories such as Art, Entertainment, Animation and Manga. The Festival's main mission is to provide opportunities by bringing new works of excellence into the field of the media arts, fostering and inspiring the process of creativity.

The Japan Media Arts Festival exhibition organized in İstanbul for the first time at Pera Museum focused on two specific aspects of media arts: the Creative Mind and the Narrative Mind. The exhibition explored these two aspects through award-winning works from past Japan Media Arts Festival exhibitions as well as more recent works. With this exhibition, Pera Museum brought together creative works by Japanese artists that fuse technology and expression in the most extraordinary styles.
