Urgent Talk 022:
Lessons from "Gutai: Splendid Playground": Situating Japanese Art Globally

Japanese-English simultaneous interpretation available

This lecture examines the growing prominence of Japanese postwar and contemporary art on the world stage, focusing in particular on the presentation of "Gutai: Splendid Playground" at the Guggenheim Museum in New York (2013). This lecture will provide insight into some of the curatorial strategies that enabled Gutai to be understood as a movement relevant to global art discourses, and reflect upon a number of recent presentations of Japanese art that have participated in creating a more global discourse about Japanese art, including "Roppongi Crossing 2013: OUT OF DOUBT."
