Lecture by When Lives Become Form curator Yuko Hasegawa
When Lives Become Form: Alternative Modernism—Brazil and Japan
Yuko Hasegawa is Chief Curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo and Curator of When Lives Become Form: Brazilian Contemporary Art, 1960s to the Present. The artist Hélio Oiticica's statement, "being alive is art itself," is suggestive of the alternative modernism of two countries, Brazil and Japan. Yuko Hasegawa’s lecture will focus on what is most essential in contemporary art today by reinterpreting and reinvestigating three generations of Brazilian artists with reference to this landmark statement.
