Continuing its mission to bring the excellence of contemporary artists to the San Francisco Bay Area through synergies of partnerships for site-related events and longer-term projects, Ars Citizen is thrilled to introduce internationally acclaimed Paris-based composer and artist Ryoji Ikeda.

“Home of the world’s largest firms and advanced research in electronic and information technologies, the Bay Area is a perfect location to present Ikeda’s work regarded as one of the most innovative and influential within computer-generated audiovisual creation” says Ars Citizen’s founding director and curator Evelyne Jouanno.

For Ikeda’s first major presentation in San Francisco, Ars Citizen has conceived a diptych project corresponding to Ikeda’s distinctive way to show his work, through both large-scale audiovisual performances and installations, either in night clubs or in art institutions like museums. Organized with different partners, the event will feature:

++ ‘supercodex [live set]’, an audio-visual concert at Gray Area, January 9, 7pm, 2018

++ ‘A [4ch version]’, a site-specific exhibition at Ars Citizen temporary space — Minnesota Street Project Gallery 200 (2nd fl.), January 9-21, 2018

Concurrent with the annual art fairs in San Francisco which connect national and international figures during a frenetic week of exhibitions and events in January 2018, the event 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 Ryoji Ikeda: Premiere in San Francisco, a section of Gallery 200 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: Premiere in San Francisco — the diptych components:

++ ‘supercodex [live set]’, audio-visual concert, Gray Area, January 9, 7pm
Ars Citizen partnered with Gray Area to present the San Francisco premiere of ‘supercodex [live set]’, Ikeda’s celebrated most recent audio-visual concert. ‘supercodex [live set]’ takes its title from Ikeda’s eponymous 2013 album, the 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 more importantly, the nuances existing between “data of sound” and “sound of data”. Using raw data and physical laws to generate music and digital imagery projections, the stage show becomes an immersive experience expanding through mesmerizing layers of beats and pulsations to include all the audience.
Tickets: $40 – $50 (on sale here)

++ ‘A [4ch version]’, site-specific exhibition, Ars Citizen temporary space, Minnesota Street Project Gallery 200 (2nd fl.), January 9–21
The sound-installation A with its site-related versions may be perceived as Ikeda’s most radical work. It returns to his roots as a composer while charting new territories in sound creation and definition. The title A stands for the concert pitch also called “La”. “A” lies at the origin of music. It is the origin of all sonic creations, and by extension, of the cosmos and of elements. Before “A=440Hz” was defined as the standard concert pitch, there were many different historical standards that still vary depending on orchestras or countries. Specifically adapted to Gallery 200 of Minnesota Street Project, A [4ch version] will transform the space into a sensitive environment filled with invisible patterns of complex sound fabrics formed through the historical concert pitch A. It will lead the visitors into a physical and mental space where they can, in the artist’s words, “walk through and move around the invisible sound ocean of the history of standardizing of music.”

— Ryoji Ikeda: Premiere in San Francisco is organized and curated by Ars Citizen.
