Panelists: Hiroko Ikegami (associate professor, Graduate School of Intercultural Studies, Kobe University, Japan), Ushio Shinohara (artist, New York), and Keiichi Tanaami (artist, Tokyo)
Hiroko Ikegami leads a discussion with the legendary artists about their encounters with US Pop in Tokyo in the 1960s, and their somewhat subversive, even sardonic response to it. She will ask if we can speak of a “Tokyo Pop,” and talk about the activities of the Sogetsu Art Center and its avant-garde activities during the decade.
Speaker: Olga Viso (executive director, Walker Art Center)
Part of International Pop: Opening-Day Talks
