Art historian Hiroko Ikegami leads a conversation with artists Ushio Shinohara and Keiichi Tanaami about their encounters with US Pop in Tokyo in the 1960s and their somewhat subversive, even sardonic response to it. They ask if we can speak of a “Tokyo Pop” and discuss the Sogetsu Art Center and its avant-garde activities during this pivotal decade.
