Lunchtime Lecture: Performance Traditions and Visual Media in Japan
The traditional arts of Japan include a number of visually dynamic forms, traces of which can be seen in the work of Tabaimo, the subject of the exhibition Tabaimo: Her Room. Karen Fraser, assistant professor of Asian art in the Department of Art and Art History at Santa Clara University, California, will introduce two of the best-known forms of performance art: Bunraku puppet theater and the stylized Kabuki theater.
Lunchtime Lecture Series take place on the first Wednesday of the month at noon in the Charlotte Wendel Education Center. Visitors are welcome to bring food and beverages.
