NOSHIJIMA Atsushi

NISHIJIMA Atsushi


Atsushi Nishijima has been creating two- and three-dimensional works inspired by different characteristics of "sound" with identical and similar phenomena. He is also a contemporary practitioner of the "chance operations" that were part of John Cage's "music of chance" methodology. Through his wide-ranging work in performances and in sound installations, he continues his research of both sound and music.
Atsushi Nishijima was born in 1965 in Kyoto. He received his Bachelor’s degree from the Osaka University of Arts in 1989 and graduated from the International Academy of Media Arts and Science in Gifu in 2001. He stayed in New York with the Asian Cultural Council fellowship in 2001, as well as in Berlin in the Program of Overseas Study for Upcoming Artists by the Japanese Government’s Agency for Cultural Affairs in 2014-2015. He has presented work in numerous exhibitions including “Citycircus” (New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, 1994) and “For Missing O ‘KYTO’” (Tomio Koyama Gallery Kyoto, 2011). Nishijima also organized “John Cage 100th Anniversary Countdown Event” (The National Muse- um of Art, Osaka, and other venues) through 2007–2012.
