BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Ming Tiampo, associate professor of art history at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, will provide a lecture and tour of the exhibition "Under Each Other's Spell": The Gutai and New York, on view at UB Anderson Gallery, 1 Martha Jackson Place, Buffalo, through Aug. 22.

The lecture and tour will examines the fruitful relationship that developed between the avant-garde Gutai Art Group, which was founded in Osaka, Japan, in 1954 and New York artists in the 1950s and 1960s. Martha Jackson, mother of David Anderson and famous gallerist in New York City, introduced the Gutai to American audiences in the important 1958 group exhibition at the Martha Jackson Gallery.
