Time Out says

The Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (MOT) has for almost a quarter-of-a-century been holding yearly exhibitions, under the banner of MOT Annual, that showcase diverse aspects of contemporary artistic practice in order to stimulate discussion and inquiry. MOT Annual 2023 takes a timely look at the relationship between the notions of ‘creation’, as manifested through the imaginations and craft of artists, and ‘generation’ brought about by such buzzword technologies as artificial intelligence, NFTS and the metaverse.

Around 50 works, by 11 artists including young ‘digital natives’, encourage visitors to perceive the exciting synergies that can be created between ‘creation’ and ‘generation’, two concepts that like analog vs. digital are usually thought of as opposites. Highlights include highly pixelated paintings created using a tablet app by popular NFT artist Zombie Zoo Keeper (the youngest creator featured; born 2012), and Future Sushi, an installation by Etsuko Ichihara that imagines the culinary delights of a dystopian age.

Note: the exhibition is closed from December 28 2023 to January 1 2024.
