Lecture: “Recontextualizing Neo-Dada: Jasper Johns in Tokyo, 1964”

Lecturer Hiroko Ikegami, of Kobe University’s Graduate School of Intercultural Studies, focuses on Jasper Johns’s visit to Tokyo in 1964 as a case study to examine how the cross-cultural network he created in Tokyo affected the production and reception of works he made in the city.

Recontextualizing Neo-Dada: Jasper Johns in Tokyo, 1964 is part of the Terra Lectures in Americanist Postmodern—an annual lecture series and corresponding one-day seminar at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago that provides a central platform for this growing body of scholarship and affords a unique opportunity to interact with and learn from the preeminent scholars in the field of Americanist art history.

This lecture will take place in the MacLean Ballroom. For more information, please visit:
