First major exhibition on the history, artists and works of E.A.T (Experiments in Art and Technology) at NTT InterCommunication Center, Tokyo, April 11-June 29, 2003. Originally founded by the engineer, Billy Kluver in 1960, E.A.T was an attempt to meld practices, methods and approaches of artists, engineers and scientists into the artistic environment. Over the years, its members (over a thousand) have included such stellar names as Jaspar Johns, Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol, as well as the Japanese artist, Fujiko Nakaya. This exhibition raises the question of how to understand the 'tradition' of 'art and technology' that not only addresses the past (starting with Modernity) but its significance today. An edited history of E.A.T by Billy Kluver and Julie Martin. Essays and biographies.
