Bill Viola, one of the world's leading video artists, first traveled to Japan in 1980 on a one-year arts fellowship to study and experience first hand its cultural traditions and religions. He extended his stay by six months to work at Sony's Atsugi Research Center where he gained access to the most advanced video technology of the time. The influence of both experiences transformed his work. This exhibition, organized by the Mori Art Museum and The Asahi Shimbun, showcases work from Viola's productive career, beginning with Hatu-Yume (First Dream) (1981), the 56 minute video he made while staying in Japan, to The Raf, (2004), one of his recent room-size installations. It is his first survey exhibition in Asia, and takes his "first dream" in Japan as a starting point for viewing his subsequent work.
