LADY GAGA The Monster Ball Tour 2010.04.14-04.18

Probably the biggest artist currently around, Lady Gaga has been called revolutionary as she has not only left an indelible mark on the music scene but also the fashion world as well.
Gaga will bring her ecclectic mix of electronic, pop and rap to unsuspecting Japan audiences. No telling what she will do but one things for sure, shell be leaving audiences begging for more.

The Artist File exhibition introduces a group of currently active artists whose work is among the most noteworthy, both in Japan and abroad. This year’s event features seven artists (six Japanese, one foreign).
The exhibitions in the Artist File series have no specific theme. This year’s event presents artists with a wide range of ages, from those in their 30s to those in their 50s, and a variety of expressions, including painting, video, and sculpture, which deal with many different themes. This diversity and complexity helps realize what might be seen as the main objective of the series: to reflect the “reality” of the era.
