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. On the occasion of her new fog installation in Bristol, join us for a unique opportunity to hear Nakaya discuss her use of technological and natural phenomena as an artistic medium throughout her forty year career.
This event coincides with Fujiko Nakaya’s Fog Bridge installation presented by In Between Time running from 13–23 February 2015 in Bristol.
