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.
Since the 1980s, artist Yasumasa Morimura has been a leading figure of contemporary Japanese art, influencing numerous artists across the globe. Join us for this illuminating conversation with contemporary art specialists Prof. Ignacio Adriasola(University of British Columbia) and Thomas Sokolowski (Zimmerli Museum, Rutgers University), and other experts, focusing on Morimura's impact on successive generations of artists.
