Please join us for the 2020-2021 King School Museum of Contemporary Art (KSMoCA) Artist Lecture Series. These free lectures are open to members of the public and students at Dr. MLK Jr School and their families. This lecture will take place via YouTube livestream.

Cameron A. Granger came up in Cleveland, Ohio alongside his mother, Sandra, inheriting both her love of soul music and habit of apologizing too much. A video artist and 2017 alumni of the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, he uses his work to reconcile his state as an individual shaped by and existing in American history, its media, and all of its associated violence. His recent projects include “The Get Free Telethon” a 24-hour livestream community fundraiser sponsored by Red Bull Arts, “Pearl” a body of collaborative works with his mother at Ctrl+Shft in Oakland, and “A library, for you” a traveling community library most recently housed at ikattha project space in Bombay, India. In 2020 his work was collected & commissioned by both the Columbus Museum of Art & Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio.

Presentations will be recorded and made available on our YouTube channel as an ongoing resource for students, teachers, and members of the public.

Add to my Calendar 2021-02-25 18:00:00 2021-02-25 20:00:00 Sun and Celluloid: The Films of Mishima Yukio Join PSU's Center for Japanese Studies, with co-sponsors Department of World Languages and the Institute for Asian Studies, for our series, "Re-discovering the Work of Mishima Yukio, Fifty Years Out." REGISTER FOR WEBINAR Known primarily for his exceptional prose and dynamic personality Mishima Yukio continues to fascinate and intrigue audiences around the world. Within Mishima’s literary and pop culture success, however, was a personal fascination with cinema. This talk will analyze Mishima’s film-work not as a hobby or sideshow, but argue that it forms a core component in the totality of Mishima’s artistic development. From Yakuza pictures of the studio system, stunt casting in avante-garde film, or even a mock rehearsal of his own death, Mishima Yukio contributed to a brief, but potent component of Japanese cinema history. Patrick A. Terry is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the School of Film at Portland State University offering courses pertaining to East Asian and transnational cinemas. His PhD work at the University of Kansas addresses the intersection of art and commerce in Japan’s domestic film industry from the late 1960s to early 1990s with emphasis on the collapse of the studio system and rise of independent production companies. He is currently working on articles and a manuscript pertaining to the rise of Kadokawa Pictures and their company head, Kadokawa Haruki. This series has been made possible by a grant from the Toshiba International Foundation. Remote cjs@pdx.edu cjs@pdx.edu America/Los_Angeles public
