Nippon Cha Cha Cha!
[Gallery Event] October 13, 7:30 PM
In this one-night-only multimedia performance followed by an artist's talk, Yasumasa Morimura delves into the intermingled paths of his personal story, the history of Japan, and the history of art in Japan after WWII. Metamorphosing before the eyes of the audience into renowned figures from modern times, he questions the variety of interpretations that arise from the notion of "self" which he has developed in his artistic practice over the past 30 years.

In his artistic exploration of postwar Japanese history, exhibition artist Yasumasa Morimura has famously staged himself as the controversial author Yukio Mishima in his iconic 1970 coup d'état speech at the Army headquarters in Tokyo. For the fall installation of our Book Club series, the artist has handpicked Mishima's novel Temple of the Golden Pavillion (1956). Led by Prof. Gregory Pflugfelder, Columbia University.
