"My Reality: The Culture of Anime"
2002-01-26 until 2002-03-24
Contemporary Arts Center
Cincinnati, OH, USA

Influenced by American animation, such as Disney cartoons and Japanese wood block printing, the Japanese animation form known as anime has become a dominant force in global pop culture. My Reality: The Culture of Anime investigates the impact of anime on today's art and mainstream culture.

The work in the show explores anime's slick conventions, such as futuristic technology, cyborgs, fantastical creatures and post-apocalyptic landscapes, as well as such themes as changing gender roles and the explosion of consumerism.

My Reality includes works by Japanese artists Takashi Murakami, Kenji Yanobe, Yoshitomo Nara, Mariko Mori, Momoyo Torimitsu and Taro Chiezo, and Korean artist Lee Bul. Works by western artists Matthew Benedict, Paul McCarthy, Micha Klein, Richard Patterson, James Esber, Tom Sachs and Charlie White complement those by the Asian artists. James Esber was included in the CAC's Fall 1999 exhibition Brooklyn, New Work, and Yanobe showed at the Center in 1997.

My Reality is organized by the Des Moines Art Center and distributed by Independent Curators International. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog that incorporates trading cards as an incentive to interest young people in the art of our time.
