New! Distinguished Lecturers Series: Yoko Ono and Japanese Performance Artists with Dr. Midori Yoshimoto

The Distinguished Lecturers Series invites noted scholars to discuss the rich layers of history and ideas underlying the Delaware Art Museum’s collections. In the early 1960s, Yoko Ono bridged the art worlds between New York and Tokyo, facilitating creative artistic exchange among artists of both worlds. This talk by Dr. Midori Yoshimoto will highlight the imaginative work of Yoko Ono during the 1960s. It will also lay out the brief history of avant-garde performance in Japan and introduce Ono’s contemporaries.
