Art x Art x Art is a new series introducing artistic scenes from around the world, with a spotlight on artists who pursue new music and forms of artistic expression for an audience, which is always willing to experience something new. Part 1 of the series will feature globetrotting composer Dai Fujikura, and the world premiere of a new indoor electronica collaboration between him and Ryuichi Sakamoto. Director Daizaburo Harada has chosen young video artists who are creating video to be played along with the music as well. In between the first and second performances, a menu filled with strange and surprising creations inspired by Dai Fujikura’s music will be offered by Chef Kaneko from the french restaurant Omoetesando L’as. Food will be served in the foyer and on the sky terrace as Dai Fujikura’s music plays, allowing the participants to experience the totality of Hakuju Hall in a way like never before.
