Mediarena Television (Full Length) – 2004 Documentary Arts/Culture

Start video player

Mediarena was an exhibition of contemporary art from Japan on show in New Plymouth in 2004. Held at the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, it showcased 17 artists and a video installation. Hosts Serena Bentley and Yuri Kinugawa travel to Taranaki for the Artsville series and find out how artists are transforming and subverting traditional images and ideas and bringing them into a contemporary form. Themes include female subservience in Japanese society, celebrity culture, the commuter experience, genetic modification and ecological sustainability.

The works tend to focus around daily routines, ideas about space, simple notions of actions.
– Govett Brewster Art Gallery Director Greg Burke
