A Century of Asian Art at Oberlin:  Japanese Prints

December 19, 2017 - May 27, 2018

Ripin Gallery

This retrospective exhibition of Japanese prints from the AMAM’s collection includes not only ukiyo-e woodblock prints from the Mary A. Ainsworth bequest, but also later works from the 20th century shin-hanga (new prints) and sōsaku-hanga (creative prints) movements, as well as more recent contemporary works.

The exhibition, organized by Kevin R. E. Greenwood, the Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art, also emphasizes the role that individuals have played in building the AMAM collection through their donations of important works of art.
