Contemporary Narrative Art: Evolution of Masami Teraoka’s Work to 2014

with artist Masami Teraoka
Wednesday, September 3, 2014 - 7:00pm9:00pm.

Throughout his career, Japanese artist Masami Teraoka has acknowledged the simultaneous fusion and clashing of East and West. He combines fantasy and humor with darker social issues in paintings and prints that are informed by history, art history, politics, sexuality, the AIDS epidemic and the globalization of American franchises such as Baskin-Robbins and McDonald’s.

For this program, doors open at 6 pm to allow attendees to view At The Mirror: Reflections of Japan in 20th Century Prints on level 2.
