"Shuzo Azuchi Gulliver: Experimental Japanese Film, 1966-69"
Sunday, February 19 at 2:00 p.m. at Vox Populi, 319 N. 11th Street, Philadelphia.
Vox Populi and Collaborative Cataloging Japan (CCJ) are pleased to co-present an artist lecture and video-based performance with Japanese artist Shuzo Azuchi Gulliver, who will discuss his experimental practice in conceptual and performative film in Japan during the 1960s.
This event will also feature a lecture by Dr. Erin Schoneveld, Assistant Professor in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at Haverford College, who will further contextualize Gulliver's practice through an overview of the historical and cultural context of experimental aesthetic production in postwar Japan, and will touch upon a broad field of art and cinema that has been defined, in part, by the histories of the Gutai Group, Jikken Kobo, and Fluxus movements, and a rich legacy of experimental and narrative filmmaking that developed during postwar Japan. The event is supported by a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation.
