“Tomoko vs Mr. A,” acrylic on canvas

BFA alum YUMIKO GLOVER, currently working toward her MFA at UC Santa Barbara, just organized a collaborative project entitled LOVE, PEACE, DREAMS, AND BOMBS. The project combines an exhibition of new artwork by Glover alongside talks by UCSB students and scholars A. Colin Raymond (History of Art & Architecture), Carl Gabrielson (EALCS), Sabine Früstück (EALCS), and another UHM alum Travis Seifman (History), as well as video interviews conducted by activist Naoya Matsushima. An experiment in collaborative expression through art, scholarship, and activism, the aim of Love, Peace, Dreams, and Bombs is to promote more complex and globally-situated understandings of Japan.
