    This is a virtual program via ZOOM. 

    This lecture examines the confluence of popular movies, music and images in Japan during the 1920s and 1930s. We will analyze paintings, prints, and sheet music from the Levenson collection and beyond in conjunction with films and recorded music. The goal is to explore how these forms of visual and performed art reveal Japanese culture at a moment poised between cosmopolitan pleasure and nationalistic sacrifice.

    Dr. Kendall Brown is Professor of Asian Art History at California State University Long Beach. He holds a Ph.D. in Art History from Yale University and an MA from UC Berkeley. He publishes in several areas of Japanese art, focusing on popular arts of the 1920s and 1930s, as well as on Japanese-style gardens in North America.
