Modern tough guys lock samura i-style in battle. Candy-colored streams of animals and flowers hyperpixel ate. These dramatic visual moments are among those to be encountered in&nb sp\;<em>Garden of Unearthly Delights: Works by Ikeda\, Tenmyouya &amp\; te amLab</em>.\n\nManabu Ikeda (b. 1973)\, Hisashi Tenmyouya (b. 1966)\, and the art and technology collective teamLab (est. 2001) are artistic visiona ries who are shaping today&rsquo\;s Japanese art and culture. But each als o harkens back to the Japanese tradition of the master craftsmen\,&nbsp\;< em>takumi</em>\, in the level of technical precision and detail they bring to the creation of complex images. This exhibition introduces over twenty intricate allegorical paintings\, installations\, and digital works by th ese three artists.\n\nThe featured works find an affinity in the hallucina tory vision of&nbsp\;<em>The Garden of Earthly Delights</em>\, the fantast ical triptych by the fifteenth-century Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch. Jus t as Bosch did\, these three artists collage together imagery and concepts relating to different places and times in the past\, present\, and future . The results are allegorical depictions of urgent cultural and social iss ues in a manner informed by their contemporary environment&mdash\; today&r squo\;s world of spectacle and information overload.\n\nThere is a plurali ty of approach to mediums in these artists&rsquo\; works\, and yet\, seen together\, it makes clear some of the notable characteristics of today&rsq uo\;s Japanese art shared by all of them&mdash\;the obsessive attention to detail requiring a vertigo-inducing amount of time to execute\, and total immersion in the dense and fast-changing visual sensations of the informa tion society.\n\nThe exhibit is open Mon. - Fri.\, 9:30AM-5:30PM.&nbsp\;\n \nFor more information\, <a href="http://www.gardenofunearthlydelightsexhi bition.com/about-the-exhibition/">visit this page</a>.
