This half-day symposium explores the art scene and artistic production in Tokyo in the 1950s and 1960s through a series of film screenings and discussions with directors, curators, critics, and artists. The films, including ANPO: Art X War (Linda Hoaglund, 2010), Some Young People (Nagano Chiaki, 1964), and Japan: The New Art (Michael and Christian Blackwood, 1970), are followed by the roundtable discussion, “What Was So Avant-Garde about Tokyo from 1955 to 1970?”
