THE WEEKEND EXPERIENCE PART II: Let's Check Out Tokyo Nonsense, Sat 10/4 Opening

Ok everyone! Anyone free this Saturday? Let's go to the opening reception to this exhibit this Saturday.

What: Scion Installation L.A. is pleased to present TOKYO NONSENSE, a group exhibition featuring new work by 11 young Japanese artists who live and work in Tokyo.

The title, TOKYO NONSENSE, not only refers to the city itself but also references the word "nonsense" in the context of Japanese popular culture, connoting so-called "modern decadence" and the rebellious, anti-establishment spirit of the 1960s student protest movement. The work of these 11 young artists reflects both Tokyo's frenetic energy and the banal realities of everyday city life. The exhibition will consist of more radical forms of expression such as performance, video, and installation art in addition to more traditional mediums such as drawing, painting, and woodblock printing.

Original work by: Ichiro Endo, Taro Izumi, Ai Kato (aka ai*madonna), Sachiko Kazama, Iichiro Tanaka, and the six-member artist group, Chim↑Pom

When: October 4 - October 25, 2008
Opening Reception: October 4th, 7p-10p
