Reframing the Floating World: Japanese Painting
"Celebration at the Entrance of the New Yoshiwara (Katsukawa Shunkō II 勝川春好) , TL42391.17,” Harvard Art Museums collections online, Nov 04, 2022, https://hvrd.art/o/340565.
Join us for a journey through the floating world in our newly renovated Japanese painting gallery (gallery 2600).
This gallery talk will reframe the arts of early modern Japan's theater and entertainment districts - cities within cities where the restrictions and rules of daily life could be shed in what has been dubbed the "floating world." These images were some of the first to reach Europe and America, where they were often wildly misunderstood on both the conceptual and material level, with ongoing consequences that have been both productive and corrosive.
Gallery talks are limited to 18 people, and it is required that you reserve your place. At 10am the day of the event, reservations will open and may be arranged online through this form. The gallery talk reservation will also serve as your general museum reservation. If required, visitors will pay the museum admission fee upon arrival.
