On January 26th, 2001, ‘Sendai Mediatheque‘, which has also attracted a great deal of attention as architecture, finally opened. It’s a huge complex media facility composed of the civic library of Sendai City, Gallery space and Cinema space. The opening event being held from January 26th to March 20th includes large and small projects and workshops such as the ‘Door of Memories’ held at the main gallery space.
As one of the opening events, a special program featuring ‘Computer Graphics’ will be showcased at cinema space from February 13th to 18th. The program will be categorized in Special creators, Special producers, Moving images look through language, etc, and showcase works of younger creators and creators of middle standing in the last five years in Japan. It will be a good opportunity to see such artwork at the same time.
For the theater event at Mediatheque, the ‘special program featuring computer graphics’ will be realized by 28 visual creators and producers who operate various media as they like.
