Text ⇆ Image

May 27–August 7, 2022

Into the Screen: Digital Art from teamLab

January 28–August 7, 2022
Founded in 2001 by Toshiyuki Inoko, teamLab is a Tokyo-based collaboration of more than 500 designers, engineers, and technologists with a shared mission to integrate art, technology, and nature. This exhibition highlights a singular immersive digital experience by teamLab and the traditional seventeenth- to twentieth-century screens and prints that inspired it.

A New Lens: Contemporary Video and Animation

September 21–December 12, 2021
This exhibition celebrates innovative recent video works by artists who use technology to push the boundaries of time-based media. Featured works highlight the process of the artists, inviting the viewer to consider the intersections between video and other art forms. A New Lens aims to ignite imagination, and to promote an embodied, reflective, and participatory viewing experience.

Art & Protest: Artists as Agents of Social Change

September 14–December 12, 2021
Many works of art, architecture, and design throughout history have expressly reinforced existing societal power structures. This exhibition highlights art created for the opposite purpose—to shed light on injustice and inequity, challenge hierarchies, and advocate for progress—and aims to offer a sense of the breadth and depth that protest art encompasses.
