RADIO // Dialogues in Asian Contemporary ArtACAW 09: The Life and Work of Murakami Kagaku (1889-1939)
Hosted by Leeza Ahmady
Originally aired 5/29/09
Murakami Kagaku’s education in the arts reflects the ambitions of Asian Contemporary Art Week: his early work reflects his background in the Shijo school of his native Japan, but his matured and incorporated style became a statement of Asian culture at large, benefiting also from Chinese and Indian technique. In this presentation, Naoto Nakagawa, a Japanese painter whose style has also seen an evolution coordinated with travel, reviews the work and biography of the artist who has been called "the last great Japanese literati painter of the 20th century" (55 minutes).
