Focusing on art and society in the 19th and 20th centuries, when Japan underwent a rapid, self-imposed transition to modernity, this talk examines not only the linkages between anime and manga and printmaking, but also the limits of those connections, and how the evidence for and against them has been deployed to serve larger stories about race, modernity, and culture in the Asia-Pacific and worldwide. Join us at 5:30 p.m. for a reception. The program will begin at 6 p.m.
The exhibition Nature in the Floating World: Images of Nature in Japanese and Chinese Art and associated programs including this one, are generously supported by Shoko Kato Sevart in loving memory of her mother, Taka Kato; Pam Bjork; and Trish Higgins.
