Changed Times: Sources & Methods Behind 20th-Century Japanese Woodblock Prints

Andreas Marks, head of the Japanese and Korean art department at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, will discuss the artists and stories behind shin hanga, “the new print.” This art movement developed in the first half of the twentieth century in an effort to revive the great Japanese tradition of woodblock prints (known as ukiyo-e) and simultaneously capture the dynamic, modern life of Japan.

Exhibition galleries for "Seven Masters: 20th-Century Japanese Woodblock Prints" open for a public preview at 5 pm.

The lecture, “Changed Times: Sources & Methods behind 20th-Century Japanese Woodblock Prints,” begins at 7 pm in the UMFA’s Katherine W. and Ezekiel R. Dumke Jr. Auditorium.
Relevant research areas: East Asia, 20th Century, Relief printing
