Adam Blackman's Tokyo Creativity Conference went off in NYC's Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art Great Hall. Big suits and robber barons of the post-beat era watched as Ed Templeton, Aaron Rose Raymond Pettibone, Carlo McCormick, and Ryan McGinley were match-missed with Brian Eno, Kim Gordon, Jeff Tremaine, Asia Argento and Nan Goldin.
