What are FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
[Private Gallery Tour] Radicalism in the Wilderness: Japanese Artists in the Global 1960s
April 19, 10:30am - 11:30am EDT. Hosted at Japan Society
About this FieldTrip
Join us for a private “Before Hours” gallery tour of Radicalism in the Wilderness: Japanese Artists in the Global 1960, the first full-scale exhibition focusing on the radical experiments of Japanese artists from this decade.
Led by Japan Society’s Exhibitions Manager Alex Casso, you will explore a curated series of works that defied conventions and broke ground in the development of international postwar art, centered on artist Yutaka Matsuzawa and the two collectives, The Play and GUN. Little known in the U.S., these revolutionary creators expanded the definition of visual art through language, performance, mail art, land art, and political art, while engaging with well-known global contemporaries like Yayoi Kusama, Gilbert & George, Lawrence Weiner and Yoko Ono.
Radicalism in the Wilderness surveys the range of these projects, at times colorful, imaginative, and playful, but also inextricably linked to worldwide social, political, and cultural issues of the turbulent and innovative 1960s.
