Based on her latest publication, Radicalism in the Wilderness: International Contemporaneity and 1960s Art in Japan (MIT Press, April 2016), Dr. Reiko Tomii will outline two basic concepts “wilderness” and “contemporaneity” as key methodological frameworks to construct local and global art histories. First and foremost an artist’s strategy, “wilderness” was inventively and imaginatively exploited by three protagonists of her study, Matsuzawa Yutaka, a pioneer conceptualist in central Japan; The Play, a Happeners’ collective in Osaka; and GUN, a politically aware group in Niigata. “Contemporaneity,” a geo-historical concept derived from the Japanese notion of kokusaiteki dōjisei (international contemporaneity), offers an art-historian’s strategy for world art history of postwar practices, for which she has proposed such theoretical and methodological terms as “connection,” “resonance,” and “similar yet dissimilar” among others. She will demonstrate their application by focusing on the stone-based works of Mono-ha and conceptualism around 1970.

Dr. Reiko Tomii is an independent art historian and curator, who investigates post-1945 Japanese art in global and local contexts. She is co-director of PoNJA-GenKon (www.ponja-genkon.net), a listserv group of specialists interested in contemporary Japanese art, which she co-founded in 2003. Among her prolific publications, the latest is Radicalism in the Wilderness: International Contemporaneity and 1960s Art in Japan, was published by The MIT Press in Spring 2016.

“Wilderness as Method, Contemporaneity as Method” is organized by the Department of Art at Stony Brook University. Organizer: Prof. Sohl Lee, sohl.lee@stonybrook.edu.

DOUG ISCHAR at SBU Manhattan

20140502_Doug_IscharFriday, May 2, 2014
3:00pm  |  room 321A

Doug Ischar is a contemporary artist known for his work in documentary photography, installation art, sound art and video art. Following large multi-media installations such as Orderly (1994) and Wake (1996) Ischar turned to more minimal forms. His 1997 work for InSite (San Diego/Tijuana) used a high school basketball court as locale for a multimedia meditation of adolescent homosexual desire. His 2001 work ground uses twenty-four channels of audio to replicate the sound of a gallery floor being swept. His 2005 public installation Water Music explores the relationship between personal and artistic histories of the Pacific Rim cultures in which Ischar lived as a child. Since 2008, he has been producing highly complex single-channel videos around issues of cross-generational male intimacy and psychological/social loss.

Doug Ischar will be speaking and screening three recent video works, come lontano (2010), Alone With You (2011), Tristes Tarzan (2013) currently showing at the Whitney Biennial 2014.

Stony Brook Manhattan is located at 387 Park Ave South, New York, NY 10016. Use entrance around the corner at 101-113 East 27th Street.

Yvonne Rainer, The Aging Dancer and Her Dis/contents

Friday, March 28, 6:30 p.m.
Yvonne Rainer, The Aging Dancer and Her Dis/contents

The lecture will include autobiographical accounts and excerpts from a documentation of Rainer’s most recent choreography Assisted Living: Do You Have Any Money? (2013), an amalgam of movement and speech derived from a number of different sources, including Rainer’s own choreographic imagination and her collaborative process with her dancers. The piece presents new challenges for the group in that they are required to deliver long monologues while performing intricate steps. Following her customary penchant for radical juxtaposition, Rainer has taken the risky route of pairing vaudevillian pratfalls with solemn socio-economic analyses. The dire times in which we live seem to demand such an approach.

Admission:
Free and open to the public

Date:
Friday, 6:30 p.m. March 28, 2014
