Postwar Japanese prints on display at JSMA Oct. 3-Jan. 3

More than 110 modern and contemporary Japanese prints will be on display as part of the exhibit "Expanding Frontiers: The Jack and Susy Wadsworth Collection of Postwar Japanese Prints," on view beginning Oct. 3 at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art. The exhibit, co-curated by Maude I. Kerns Assistant Professor of Japanese Art Akiko Walley, includes a wide variety of printmaking techniques that range from aquatint and etching to silkscreen and woodblock printing. As part of a winter 2015 class team-taught by Walley and Anne Rose Kitagawa, the museum’s chief curator of Asian art and a co-curator of the new exhibit, sixteen students were able to study contemporary Japanese prints, most from the Wadsworth collection.
