ART iT from Japan

ART iT launched in 2003 as a bilingual Japanese-English quarterly print publication, the first of its kind in Japan. From its inception, the magazine's mission was to link contemporary art events happening in Japan to those taking place elsewhere in the region and around the world.

In 2009, ART iT began the next phase of its development by converting to an exclusively online publication and social networking site combining both editorial and user-generated content created by leading Japanese and international artists and art professionals as well as casual art enthusiasts.

ART iT intends to rethink the nature of online media. Rather than focusing on constantly updated information, the publication features in-depth, articulated ideas about contemporary art and culture.

What Will Come (2007)—which is about the Italian-Ethiopian war of the 1930s—works on the principle that what is distorted in the projection gets corrected in the viewer’s seeing of it in a mirror. So the distortion is the correction and the original is the distorted.”
—William Kentridge

Today, we join Tyler Green—along with a number of other art blogs and websites—in spotlighting the important works found in the collections at the Detroit Institute of Arts.

Seen here is William Kentridge’s anamorphic film, What Will Come (2007), as featured in two Art21 films: Compassion (2009) and William Kentridge: Anything Is Possible (2010). The work is included in the collection at the Detroit Institute of Arts, acquired by the museum in 2008.

Learn more about the “A Day for Detroit” initiative at Modern Art Notes.
