Step into Ikeda’s data-verse.

Ryoji Ikeda will be performing live inside his immersive RYOJI IKEDA exhibition – on Friday 10th September – presented by The Vinyl Factory and FACT Magazine at 180 Studios, in collaboration with Audemars Piguet Contemporary.

Celebrating the sold-out run of his RYOJI IKEDA retrospective show, the artist will present a live performances of his data-verse work.

RYOJI IKEDA invites viewers to immerse themselves in Ikeda’s dynamic digital universe, in the largest exhibition of the artist’s work ever staged, including numerous world premieres. A subterranean exploration of sound and light, the show takes viewers on a sensory journey through 180 Studios’ labyrinthine spaces.

The 12 artworks include the world premiere of Ikeda’s data-verse trilogy – a towering, triple-screen immersive project commissioned by Audemars Piguet Contemporary, and a site-specific, synapse-splitting new iteration of test pattern.

Ikeda shares: “Music is beautiful because we can’t see it and we can’t touch it, but everyone knows it. You don’t need to have it explained; you don’t need special tools to understand it. You can charge it with meaning all by yourself.”

Please note: this performance is not suitable for visitors with photosensitive epilepsy, or similar conditions.

RYOJI IKEDA LIVE will take place on Friday 10th September, at 6pm and 8pm BST, 180 The Strand, London, WC2R 1EA
