Parallel Views

Parallel Views: Italian and Japanese Art from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s presents connections between the diverse work of artists from two geographic locations, Italy and Japan, during the postwar period. Curated by Allan Schwartzman, Director of the Rachofsky Collection, Parallel Views introduces a critical collection history and articulates the inspiration for exploring the interrelationships of art in different parts of the world. Essayist, Joshua Mack considers conversations between artists and movements and raises questions about influence and reception of their work to date. Additional contributors include Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, independent curator and researcher of historical avant-garde and contemporary art; Nicholas Cullinan, Director of the National Portrait Gallery, London; and Ming Tiampo, Associate Professor of Art History at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada.
