Artist talk: Fujiko Nakaya

17 February 2015, London

Artist Fujiko Nakaya is a pioneer of installation and video art in Japan. As a member of Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) that promoted a new interdisciplinary approach towards art, technology and the environment, she opened Japan’s first video art gallery in Tokyo in 1980 and has since collaborated with renowned choreographers and artists including Trisha Brown, Robert Rauschenberg and Bill Viola. In 1970 she created the world’s first fog sculpture at the Pepsi Pavilion, Expo ‘70 in Osaka and subsequently developed her unique immersive installations around the world.

This talk is a unique opportunity to learn about Ms Nakaya’s practice and influential explorations of nature and technology throughout her forty year career, coinciding with Fujiko Nakaya’s Fog Bridge installation presented by In Between Time running from 13 to 22 February 2015 in Bristol.
