Contemporary Art of Japan

0 out of 5


By drawing parallels between the Japanese Gutai Group’s performance art and Yves Klein’s body-paintings, as well as the immersive installations of Yayoi Kusama and Olafur Eliasson’s TATE Turbine Hall commission, we will start to unravel the underlying commonalities between Japanese and Western art in the second half of the twentieth century. During this lecture we will equally familiarise ourselves with the innovative explorations that artists from Japan propagated on an international scale and look at how this stemmed from their own distinct cultural heritage.
