Lecture

I regret to announce that my visit to Indiana University and the Davis Museum at Wellesley Collage were canceled, due to the current outbreak of coronavirus disease. I’m still give a presentation and attend the conference at the Davis Museum via Skype on March 7 at 3pm (EST), but the talk and billboard exhibition in Bloomington is postponed until further notice. 3月10日に予定されていたインディアナ大学でのトークおよびブルーミントン市街のビルボード展は、日本/アメリカ国内における新型コロナウイルス感染拡大の影響で延期になりました。開催時期は未定、おそらく来年前半になりそうです。 なお3月7日、ウェルズリー大学内デイヴィス美術館で開催されるシンポジウムについては、スカイプを使用して日本から発表を行い、ディスカッションに参加します。 非常に残念なお知らせですが事態の収束まで、皆様どうかお気をつけてお過ごしください。
