Collapsing Disciplines and Distance: Experiments in Japanese Arts in the 1970s
In conjunction with the exhibition For a New World to Come:
Experiments in Japanese Art and Photography 1968-1979
Focusing on their interdisciplinary research into a wide range of art practices in Japan from 1968 to 1979, speakers in this symposium will discuss their experiments and methodologies in positioning their work from a global perspective. They will examine the emergence of new approaches to the arts during this period—often referred to as “contemporary” or “information era” and mediated by advanced technology as well as new materialism.
