Wednesday 5 August 2020, 6pm–7pm
Free, but please book on Eventbrite via the link below
After enduring the long period of lockdown, museums and galleries are finally able to start to re-open and safely welcome back visitors. It is a common fact that each object or artwork displayed comprises only a part of a museum or galleries entire collection. For Japanese collections this sometimes means that many fascinating objects may not have their chance to be shown – but curators look for different ways to more objects accessible to audiences in different ways including online presentations.
With this in mind in light of the current situation the Japanese Foundation has invited a number of curators from various museums and art galleries in England to introduce their “favourite Japanese objects” which you may not have come across before.
The curators are, Janet Boston, Manchester Art Gallery, Rosie Gnatiuk, Manchester Art Gallery, Dr Clare Pollard, Ashmolean Museum Oxford, Kate Newnham, Bristol Museum & Art Gallery and Rachel Barclay, Oriental Museum at Durham University.
