Tuesday Tea: Green Japan: Viewing Ukiyo-e Landscape Prints through the Lens of Environmental Sustainability

Tuesday, October 19, 2021 at 3:00pm to 4:30pm

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

Today we think of living sustainably and achieving carbon neutrality in terms of high-tech solutions. But in Japan's Edo period (1603–1868), a culture of sustainability was achieved in a preindustrial society with a high population and limited resources. Popular woodblock prints from the era provide a window into this world, where current ideals like "reduce-reuse-recycle" were put into practice more than two centuries ago. Join Kevin R. E. Greenwood, the AMAM's Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art, as he discusses the current exhibition Green Japan: Images of Sustainable Living in Ukiyo-e Prints.

This Tuesday Tea is offered both in person and online. The in-person event will take place in the East Gallery.

You may also watch the event on Zoom. Please note: the Zoom link will not be live until the event begins.
