A Sense of Place:
Modern Japanese Prints in Context -- A Symposium
Saturday, April 18, 2015, 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Registration
This interdisciplinary symposium brings together scholars from around the country to put modern Japanese prints into the broader historical, social, and artistic contexts of the 20th century. It accompanies the exhibition, A Sense of Place: Modern Japanese Prints at the Arthur Ross Gallery, which investigates how modern print artists referenced the tradition of famous places (meisho) established in earlier prints when they selected famous sites and landscapes for their own work. A special roundtable session with collectors and dealers will consider the important place of collecting in the history of modern Japanese prints and continued interest today in 20th-century printmaking. A companion exhibition, Representing Modern Japan: The Luber Collection of Art Books, will be on display in the Kislak Center's Goldstein Family Gallery.
