December’s talk spotlights Joryū Hanga Kyōkai, 1956-1965, the first exhibition anywhere to examine the expansive vision of Japan’s first women printmakers association, the Joryū Hanga Kyōkai. This exhibition unveils more than thirty prints that have never before been shown, highlighting a critical, dynamic, and understudied episode of modern printmaking history. The curator, Jeannie Kenmotsu, PhD, will join us to discuss the careers of five of the group’s original founding members.
