Opening Lecture: Finding the Poetic in Japanese Visual Art
MARIBETH GRAYBILL, PH.D.
THE ARLENE AND HAROLD SCHNITZER CURATOR OF ASIAN ART
Drawing on the works in Poetic Imagination in Japanese Art, exhibition curator Maribeth Graybill explores the many ways poetry has taken visual form in Japan, from the eighth century to the present. When calligraphy is a quotation of a particular verse, how does the brushwork impact our response to the text? Why is imaginary poet portraiture an important genre in Japan? And how do landscape paintings reflect poetic traditions—and invite our poetic response?Purchase tickets
