Drawing on years of research in Japan, professor Michael Dylan Foster will examine the history and cultural context of yokai in conversation with Laura Allen, curator of Takashi Murakami: Unfamiliar People - Swelling of Monsterized Human Ego. Their dialogue will trace the roots of yokai in Japanese culture, interpreting their meanings and exploring their influence throughout the ages on artists including Murakami.
