Garden of Unearthly Delights: Works by Ikeda, Tenmyouya & teamLab coming to Japan Society NY

Meltdown, by Manabu Ikeda
Garden of Unearthly Delights: Works by Ikeda, Tenmyouya & teamLab
When: Oct 10, 2014 – Jan 11, 2015
Where: Japan Society
333 East 47th Street
Between 1st and 2nd Avenues

A monster tsunami uproots a city. Modern tough guys lock samurai-style in battle. Candy-colored streams of animals and flowers hyperpixilate. These dramatic visual moments are among many to be encountered this fall in Japan Society NY's new exhibition Garden of Unearthly Delights.


The featured artists Manabu Ikeda (b. 1973, Saga Prefecture), Hisashi Tenmyouya (b. 1966, Tokyo) and the art and technology collective teamLab (est. 2001) are today's takumi, or master artisans, taking pride in the execution of dense and precisely detailed works requiring time and contemplation to grasp.

Rhyme by Hisashi Tenmyouya

Their creative imaginations travel through time, finding inspiration in a range of styles; from medieval Buddhist paintings to contemporary anime and manga. Stroll through their fantastical visions during the three months they will be on exhibition.

Ever Blossoming Life by teamLab
