Rad Smith Program in Japanese Art

Ushio Shinohara, artist
Noriko Shinohara, artist
Reiko Tomii, art historian and independent curator

The forty-year love-story between artists Ushio and Noriko Shinohara charmed audiences in the 2013 Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary Cutie and the Boxer. Now, hear about this exhilarating portrait of art and companionship as scholar and curator Reiko Tomii illustrates the very real stories of the Shinoharas’ uplifting and sometimes tragic lives as artists in New York City.

View Cutie and the Boxer (available on DVD and video streaming services) prior to this conversation to gain the most out of this special experience.

Presented in partnership with the Japan Society of Boston.
