From the Press Release: A lively Berlin / Tokyo sister-city relationship and anniversary of tearing down of the wall is reason to join in celebration. Marking the history of these two thriving capitols and ushering in a limitless future – the Berlin x Tokyo event was created. Organizers MoreTrax (the power team behind the previous Berlin/Tokyo AFTER 25) have selected pillars of the Berlin Art & Tech community to each curate an exposition showcasing their community’s diverse talent. THE WYE is proud to have been named as curator of the art exhibition for Berlin x Tokyo which will fill Sky Gallery 2 atop of Roppongi Hill Tokyo – one of world’s largest buildings. Art from Ryan Wolfe, Nathan Peter, Yoram Roth, CYLAND will look out from the viewing deck across skyscrapers to Mt Fuji. Joined by DMY (curating design), WUT Berlin (curating Fashion) and leaders of the music and tech startup scene – Berlin x Tokyo includes two days of programming featuring some of the top success stories, international projects, and global players born out of the Berlin community. Presented within political and business oriented contexts, the aim is to illustrate how actively supported art and sub-culture can lead to important economic, cultural, and social growth within a large organization, corporation or city.
