This talk unearths an immensely creative yet almost entirely overlooked period in Japanese art to reveal how it variously accommodated and resisted the workings of American empire in the early Cold War. With a focus on artworks made during the occupation (1945-1952), it shows how the political stakes of artistic expression in a polarizing world manifested in the unique site that was US-occupied Japan. The presentation will demonstrate how this transnational history of art, which stretches beyond Japan to include art from China, Europe, and the United States, holds the potential for rethinking not only the history of Japanese postwar art but also our existing narratives of global postwar art.
