Exhibition “Creativity in the Time of Corona”

We planned and produced “Creativity in the Time of Corona,” an exhibition of creations in the time of the pandemic. It will open to the public on December 5 (Sun) at NHK Plus Cross Shibuya (Shibuya Scramble Square 14F). The exhibition runs from November 24 (Tue), 2020, to January 17 (Sun), 2021.

We aim to showcase creations from around the world that came out because of this unprecedented era. The works include “Mongai Fushutu Moratorium,” a play by “Nomeets,” rehearsed and performed entirely online with all the actors from remote, and some of the videos linked to NHK’s “TECHNE 2020 with Corona” TV program, including “Virtual Tour de France,” an attempt to make being isolated to a fun experience by virtually reconstructing the historical bicycle race running over 100 years. Whatever contributed with “ROBOT VIEWING” telepresence solution and a hands-on installation based on “RakugakiAR” that allows you to draw an image of “Amabie,” a mythical creature believed to ward off plagues.

The novel coronavirus impacted our lives at scale humanity has rarely seen before. The entire world has begun “staying home,” our daily lives constrained, and almost all face-to-face events were postponed or canceled. Yet, to get over it and have fun even in this hardship, creatives continue to explore various forms of expression, leveraging their creativity.

Please join us in celebrating human creativity that doesn’t give in. We hope that this exhibition will allow visitors to think about how they can enrich the world today with their own creative power.
