Yukio Lippit (Jeffrey T. Chambers and Andrea Okamura Professor of History of Art and Architecture) will give a talk on his (2018) publication "The Artist in Edo," an anthology of essays published by the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Collectively the essays explore the subject position of the artist in Edo-period Japan (1615-1868) and how it was shaped by the historical and cultural contingencies of the early modern period.

This talk is part of the Harvard-Yenching Library Book Talk Series, in which faculty discuss their recent publications.

Light refreshments will be served.
