MEGA-WAVE Towards a New Synthesis

YOKOHAMA2001 is a never-before-seen grand-scale exhibition set against the stage of the city of Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, which neighbors Tokyo. Long awaited by audiences both inside and outside of Japan, this will be Japans first large-scale survey of international art featuring works by 110 artists from around the globe. The works cover a broad spectrum of media, such as painting, sculpture, photography, video, installations and performance, and also include a broad array of works connected to architecture, design, fashion, film, animation and comics.

The title of the exhibition, Mega-Wave Towards a New Synthesis is meant to project the image of a great wave of art emanating from the city of Yokohama. Under this title, the show will attempt to introduce the forefront of world art, while at the same time presenting a new vision of the synthesis of art and society. Most of the participating artists will create a new work for the show. Each of them visits and spends time in the city and the exhibition site to make their work. The sites cover the immense Pacifico Yokohama Exhibition Hall, the Red Brick Warehouse No. 1, and several other venues in the seaside district.
