NSU Lecture Series: Japanese Kaiju Toys and Contemporary Art

TAGS: Lecture Special Event Virtual Live
Thursday 7/9

During the 1960s and 70s in Japan, children tuned in every Saturday to watch movies and TV shows where super-heroes battled monsters to save cities from destruction. Japanese companies produced an array of soft vinyl kaiju (monster) toys based on their characters that were rediscovered by collectors. These collectors are largely responsible for starting the urban vinyl collector movement, which has been embraced by artists like KAWS, FriendsWithYou, Kenny Scharf, Yoshimoto Nara, Takashi Murakami and many others, some of whom are featured in NSU Art Museum’s current Happy! exhibition.

Lecture given by Professor James B. Levy of Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law.

Premieres Thursday, July 9, 6 PM on NSU Art Museum’s Youtube Channel
