Where are you and I?@@The art exhibition gThe New World Mapsh

The galaxy, the globe, the nation, XX prefecture, XX district, and XX townc
In todayfs society, every place is segmented and named, and each of us lives in such an allocated piece of the world. Meanwhile, as the popularization of the Internet enabled direct and on-line communications between countries that are geographically far-distant, transmission and transportation that does not require gmaterialh movement is now realized across the universe, and you probably think itfs nothing unusual. And this is where the question arises: Experiencing such drastic social change, now donft we see any discrepancies in grasping the relationship between gpeople and placesh with the viewpoint of limited elements such as nations and regions?

With our conventional idea of gpeople and placesh, we have taken passive approach to our way of living within an allocated area, regarding the existence of the world, nations and hometowns as something unchangeable. With the theme of the New World Maps, this exhibition proposes the new interpretation of our involvement with the world, based on our unique and various experiences and methodologies.

Featuring world recognized artists from abroad and young and active artists from home, the New World Maps project will bring each of you the opportunity of discovering your own maps to see the new world.
