Japan Media Arts Festival in İstanbul
Exhibition Brochure (PDF)
Japan Media Arts Festival is a unique and original festival from Japan since 1997 with different categories such as Art, Entertainment, Animation and Manga. The Festival's main mission is to provide opportunities by bringing new works with excellence in the field of the media arts, fostering and inspiring the process and 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 exhibitions of the Japan Media Arts Festival as well as recent works.
Pera Museum, celebrating its fifth year, has cherished and embraced young artists' works and the different mediums of art with exceptional exhibitions since its founding. With this exhibition, the Museum brought together creative works by Japanese artists that fuse technology and expression in most extraordinary styles.
The exhibition was open from 6th August - 3rd October 2010 and complemented with artist presentations, panel discussions and film screenings.
