On the occasion of San Antonio Museum of Art’s Spring exhibition, The World of Irreversible Change where the digital artwork by international art collective teamLab is presented alongside a seventeenth-century Japanese screen from SAMA’s collection, they are pleased to hold a fascinating lecture about the exhibit with art historian Nina Horisaki-Christens.

Dr. Horisaki-Christens will explore the background of The World of Irreversible Change, teamLab’s digital, animated artwork reminiscent of historic Japanese folding screens depicting bustling cityscapes. The discussion will position the artwork within the Japanese contemporary art scene, the history of technology-based artistic experiments, and rhetorics of chance and change in Japanese art.

Nina Horisaki-Christens is a 2023-24 Postdoctoral Fellow at the Getty Research Institute and holds a PhD from the Department of Art History and Archaeology and the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society at Columbia University. Her research focuses on the intersection of art, media, urbanism, translation, and social engagement in Japan, Asia, and the Asian diaspora.
