Daito Manabe Rhizomatiks Research Exhibition

Daito Manabe’s artistic practice pushes computer programming to unexplored limits, consistently presenting innovative new approaches to heretofore conventional technologies. Throughout his prolific corpus of high-profile collaborations, Manabe has become an international name in diverse realms spanning design, art, and entertainment. The present exhibition represents Manabe’s first retrospective hosted by a domestic art museum, exploring his impressive oeuvre through an extensive display of extant performance pieces and behind-the-scenes documentation, as well as offering an unprecedented window into his most recent work. The Kirishima Open-Air Museum’s unique environment promises an unparalleled engagement with Manabe’s defining faculties of creativity and preternatural foresight. We hope to see you there.
