IHP will host a personal appearance by renowned Japanese Pop Artist Keiichi Tanaami on Tuesday, March 15, at 7 p.m. Tanaami will discuss and present some of his earliest animated films, which offer political critique in the form of psychedelic collages. His films will be paired with selections from Tadanori Yokoo, another giant of Japanese Pop art, and filmmaker Toshio Matsumoto, who is best known for his queer cult classic, Funeral Parade of Roses. This special event is FREE to the public. It is part of the Pop: On Screen and Around the World series, which is  guest curated by Ed Halter and organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art in collaboration with International House Philadelphia on the occasion of the exhibition International Pop, which is on view at the Museum through May 15, 2016.  For more information or to RSVP to attend this event, click here.
