大館當代美術館呈獻「幽靈維面——電馭叛客在未來之年」展覽丨TAI KWUN CONTEMPORARY SHOWCASES PHANTOM PLANE, CYBERPUNK IN THE YEAR OF THE FUTURE

大館當代美術館今天宣布將於 2019 年 10 月 5 日至 2020 年 1 月 4 日期間,與紐約巴德學院的策展研究中心聯手呈獻全新的「幽靈維面——電馭叛客在未來之年」展覽。

Tai Kwun Contemporary today announces a new exhibition: Phantom Plane, Cyberpunk in the Year of the Future.

是次展覽由 Lauren Cornell、陳樂明、譚雪及 Tobias Berger 負責策劃,並由助理策展人 Jeppe Ugelvig 協力舉行。策展靈感來自八十年代經典科幻電影《2020》和動漫《阿基拉》等所預視的2019年,展覽將探討「電馭叛客」(cyberpunk,又譯網絡或數碼龐克)的美學如何滲透於當代藝術及視覺文化中,並審視這類型的科幻構想如何成為我們的當下。

Inspired by 2019 — the year of the future in iconic cyberpunk films like Blade Runner and Akira — the exhibition will examine how the aesthetics of cyberpunk have bled into contemporary art and visual culture, and explore how cyberpunk fictions have become our reality. Co-presented with the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, New York, and curated by Lauren Cornell, Dawn Chan, Xue Tan, Tobias Berger, with Jeppe Ugelvig, assistant curator, the exhibition runs from 5 October 2019 to 4 January 2020.

Cyberpunk 是於 1980 年代興起的科幻小說類型,其所描繪的未來充斥着先進科技,城市範圍不斷蔓延,社會秩序全然不同,而一眾特立獨行的角色則身處社會邊緣,奮力完成自身的任務。不論是《2020》和《廿二世紀殺人網絡》等電影,還是《攻殼機動隊》等漫畫或 Philip K. Dick的小說,cyberpunk 文化持續出現於各種藝術載體,相繼引發觀眾的興趣與反思。

In cyberpunk, a science fiction genre, futures dominated by advanced technologies often appear hand in hand with sprawling urban backdrops, a radically transformed social order, and a cast of characters pursuing their own stories at the margins of society. First gaining momentum in the 1980s, the genre has continued to evoke meaning and interest in audiences through a broad range of artistic mediums, whether in films like Blade Runner and The Matrix, manga and anime such as Ghost in the Shell, or the novels of Philip K. Dick.
