ACAW 09: The Life and Work of Murakami Kagaku (1889-1939)



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).

RADIO SERIES

In collaboration with Clocktower Radio (formerly ARTonAIR.org), Leeza Ahmady, independent curator and director of Asian Contemporary Art Week (ACAW), conducts interviews with artists, curators, critics, and experts working both inside and outside of Asia. The program will include Ahmady's reports from around town and will feature select recordings of conversations, talks, and panel discussions across venues in New York City.

Born in Afghanistan and based in New York, Ahmady is an independent art curator, educator, and noted specialist in art from Central Asia. As the director of Asian Contemporary Art Week (ACAW) at Asia Society, Ahmady brings together leading New York City galleries and museums to participate in special exhibitions, receptions, lectures, and performances citywide.

Asian Contemporary Art Week connects leading New York City galleries and museums in a citywide event comprised of public exhibitions, receptions, lectures and performances. The Week focuses on the broad spectrum of artworks produced by Asian contemporary artists working in their home countries and abroad. Asian Contemporary Art Week is organized by Asian Contemporary Art Consortium. Clocktower Radio is a media sponsor for the events and the recordings collected over the years are available in this section of the archive.
