HANGA NOW: CONTEMPORARY JAPANESE PRINTMAKERS
ongoing through December 18, 2016
Surveying contemporary Japanese printmakers working in a wide range of techniques, including color woodblocks, etchings, mezzotints, lithographs, and screenprints, HANGA NOW highlights the artists’ diversity, creativity, and sensitivity to materials. Prints in this exhibition range from abstract to representational, but share the reverence for materials and exquisite craftsmanship that characterizes Japanese art from all periods. Many of the artists – even those who adopt an abstract style – treat such traditional Japanese themes as nature and the four seasons. Although the primary focus of HANGA NOW is on prints executed in the last 25 years (1990 – 2015), it also includes works by the generation of artists who studied with or were influenced by the first masters of ssaku hanga. Major artists in the exhibition include TAMEKANE Yoshikatsu, IWAMI Reika, SHINODA Toko, IMAMURA Yoshio, NAKAZAWA Shin’ichi, and HAMANISHI Katsunori. HANGA NOW is supported in part by The Edward C. and Ann T. Roberts Foundation, the IFPDA Foundation, the Karen L. Chase ’97 Fund, and Toshiko Uchino.
