ART BEASTIES is a Japanese artist collective based in New York City. Time Difference is our first collaboration between the members exploring time, locations, and surroundings from various perspectives. We live in different time zones, countries and cities; we communicate online and some of us never met in person. Starting off from experiencing somewhat counter-intuitive and awkward moments created through Skype communication between three time zones, we explore the gap in our perception of time in the different time zones. The Art Beasties members investigate new discoveries and possibilities that real-time, time lag, digital glitch and cultural and linguistic context would create the process. The projects include live music performance, photography, installation, video, and painting.

A concurrent pop-up show will be held at Prole Drift Gallery from April 2–4, 2015. A special reception will be held on Saturday April 4, 2015, 6–9pm.

ART BEASTIES is a Japanese artist collective based in New York City. We strive to broaden and deepen the understanding of contemporary Japanese art to an international audience, promoting individuality and diversity of esthetics, without the influence of pop anime or Japanese traditional art. Through hosting show and curating an online registrar of Japanese artists. ART BEASTIES seeks to create alternative roads for audience, artists and critics to discover and share in critical discussion about Japanese contemporary art.
