Ars Citizen presents Ryoji Ikeda: Premiere in San Francisco
For Ikeda’s first major presentation in San Francisco, the independent art organization has conceived a diptych project corresponding to the artist's distinctive way to show his work.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Continuing with its mission to bring leading contemporary artists to the San Francisco Bay Area through collaborative partnerships for site-related events and longer-term projects, Ars Citizen introduces internationally acclaimed Paris-based composer and artist Ryoji Ikeda.

“Home to advanced research in data and computer science, the Bay Area is a perfect location to introduce Ikeda’s work saluted as one of the most radical and innovative within computer-generated audiovisual creation,” says Ars Citizen’s founder and curator Evelyne Jouanno.

For Ikeda’s first major presentation in San Francisco, the independent art organization has conceived a diptych project corresponding to the artist's distinctive way to show his work, through live performances and installations, either in music venues or in art institutions.

Ars Citizen teamed up with leading San Francisco institutions to present the event featuring:

• Supercodex [live set], Ikeda's celebrated mesmerizing audio-visual concert and final instalment in his pioneering "datamatics" trilogy focusing on quantum information. supercodex [live set] is described as the result of a complex research exploring the potential to perceive the invisible multi-substance of data that permeates our world, and the nuances existing between “data of sound” and “sound of data.”

• A [4ch version], a site-specific exhibition. The title of Ikeda’s sound installation A stands for the standard concert pitch 440Hz, also called "La." A [4ch version] will transform Ars Citizen's temporary space at Minnesota Street Project into a sensitive environment filled with invisible patterns of complex sound fabrics formed through the historical concert pitch A. It will lead visitors to “walk through and move around the invisible sound ocean of the history of standardizing the criteria in music.”

Concurrent with the annual art fairs in San Francisco that connect national and international figures during a frenetic week of exhibitions and events in January 2018, Ryoji Ikeda: Premiere in San Francisco aims to be a highlight of the moment. It will provide an unparalleled opportunity to experience leading-edge art while creating a challenging dialogue across art and tech-sciences communities.

In addition to the event, a section of Ars Citizen temporary space at Minnesota Street Project will be occupied by the Ars Citizen Office where the organization will present its developing programs for the Bay Area, with accomplished and on-going projects.

Ryoji Ikeda (b. 1966 in Gifu, Japan, lives in Paris) has gained a reputation as one of the few international artists working convincingly across both visual and sonic media. Since 1995, he has been intensely active through concerts, installations, and recordings, integrating sound, acoustics and sublime imagery.

Ikeda has performed and exhibited worldwide, including at the Metropolitan Museum New York, UCLA Los Angeles, Centre Pompidou Paris, Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Ars Electronica Center Linz, Elektra Festival Montreal, Aichi Triennale Nagoya, Palazzo Grassi Venice, Park Avenue Armory New York, Barbican Centre London, Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin, Sharjah Biennale, Auckland Triennale, MONA Museum Hobart – Tasmania, among others.
