AMAM Exhibition - Conversations: Past and Present in Asia and America

Tuesday, February 28 at 10:00am to 5:00pm more dates through June 10, 2017

Allen Memorial Art Museum, Stern Gallery 87 North Main Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

Contemporary artists relate to past times, traditions, and techniques.

Inspired by the Allen Memorial Art Museum’s 2016–17 theme of “Time,” this exhibition bridges wide temporal and cultural distances, linking the works of artists from China, Japan, Korea, the United States, and Canada, both well-known and anonymous, living and long gone. For the spring 2017 semester, a fresh rotation of works highlights adaptations by contemporary East Asian and Asian American artists of the graphic sensibilities of Pop Art and Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints, along with the creative reworking of imagery from historical photographs.
