The National Art Center, Tokyo has launched the NACT View series, a project utilizing the Center’s public area since 2022. The space, while spectacular in impact, is elaborately designed down to the smallest detail by architect Kurokawa Kisho. Emerging and mid-career artists, designers, architects, and filmmakers will be invited to present a variety of contemporary works in the space, which resembles a public plaza where many visitors pass through or linger and enjoy leisure time.
The second edition features Nohara Tsukiji (born in 1994), an animation artist who explores new terrain in videos that combine live action with animated images, projection mapping, and other works based on the theme of a fusion of two and three dimensions.

From May 10 (Wed), a special version of the projection mapping animation will be exhibited as a part of the early exhibition viewing program of “Roppongi Art Night 2023” .
One new target (AR animation) has been added to “Nezumikke AR”.

What Is NACT View?

NACT View is a new series of small projects made by young to mid-career creators working in a variety of genres, such as fine art, design, architecture, and film, that are presented in the Centerʼs public spaces. The name of the series is made up of the English acronym for the National Art Center, Tokyo, and the word “view,” whose meanings include “gaze,” “landscape,” “viewpoint,” and “way of thinking.” The Centerʼs public spaces are places that are accessed by a wide range of people, including not only visitors to the exhibitions, but also patrons of the facilityʼs café, restaurant, and library as well as those who are merely pass through the building. By displaying works in these spaces, NACT View strives to give all of the facilityʼs visitors an opportunity to become more familiar with contemporary expressions in a casual manner. Plans are also underway to hold related workshops and talk events related to the series.
