The Women of Shin Hanga
Lecture by Nozomi Naoi, Assistant Professor, Art History, Yale-NUS, Singapore.

During the early 20th century, Japan experienced radical social and political change resulting from modernization, urbanization, and Westernization. The Shin Hanga movement responded to this cultural climate by embracing both modernity and traditional Japanese aesthetics. Beauty prints were especially important in highlighting elements of nostalgia and modernity. This talk examines these beauties in the context of the era and how they connect to visual media in Japan today.

This program is held in conjunction with Seven Masters: 20th-Century Japanese Woodblock Prints on view at the Weatherspoon Art Museum, September 10-December 4, 2021. For details visit, weatherspoonart.org

This event will be recorded.
