NewsTOKYO ARCADE – 東京アーケード

Psychedelic lights, frantic rhythms and vibrant atmospheres. The exhibit Tokyo Arcade – 東京アーケード puts the visitor in the both virtual and extremely real dimension of Japan: the one of the iconic Pachinko (ぱ ちんこ) arcades and the passion for mobile games, played in every moment of the day. In a society like this, where video games are part of everyone’s life, becoming a sheer symbol of our times, the pictures of this exhibit show the magic of everyday life: from the streets to the arcades, from the portable consoles to the gaudy coin-ops, welcome to contemporary Japan. The exhibit, in cooperation with “La compagnia delle Foto” and curated by Micaela romanini, Head of Research Center – VIGAMUS Foundation,  will be held from May 31st to July 3rd, 2016.
