Ushio Shinohara and Tomokazu Matsuyama: Neo-Dada Mix / Remix

Come hear a lively discussion about Japanese culture and history between New York-based artists Ushio Shinohara (b. 1932) and Tomokazu Matsuyama (b. 1976). Shinohara made his iconic status as a Neo-Dada artist in Japan in the late 1950s and moved to New York in 1969. Following in Shinohara’s footsteps, Matsuyama, who has lived in New York since 2001, breaks-up, remixes, and reshapes images of Japanese art. Moderated by Asia Society Associate Curator Miwako Tezuka.

Also on view: Out of This World: Animated Video from Asia Society’s Contemporary Art Collection
Three of Asia’s leading contemporary artists engage our imaginations with video works that take us out of this world. Cao Fei (b. 1978, China), a leading female artist of the post-Tiananmen generation, is known for her photographs and for her use of the virtual world of Second Life; Akino Kondoh (born 1980, Japan) made her debut with manga but is now considered an emerging talent in painting and video art; and Eko Nugroho (born 1977, Indonesia) is an influential artist who has generated a community of creative minds in his home country.
