DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art is delighted to present Paris-based Japanese composer and visual artist Ryoji Ikeda’s first survey exhibition in North America. A troubling poet of the digital age, Ikeda’s profound investigations in sound, time and space have their basis in mathematical methods which result in works of spare, sublime, if occasionally ear-splitting beauty. Spanning the microscopic to the infinite, his performances, installations and artworks variously produce sine waves, sound pulses, pixels of light and numerical data - sometimes in extraordinary combinations. The artist has conceived a conceptual counterpoint between DHC/ART’s two buildings: the main space displays framed works, light boxes, sculptural works and works on paper under the rubric “Systematics” - whereas the satellite space presents audiovisual projects, orchestrated as a symphonic whole, from the “Datamatics” series which tests the limits of perception by visualizing the invisible data streams which permeate our world.



Wednesday to friday, noon to 7 p.m.; Saturday and sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
