Thirty-Six Views of Japanese Art
March 15th – May 27th, 2022
Guest curator: Brett M. Van Hoesen, associate professor and area head of art history, University of Nevada, Reno
The exhibition, “Thirty-six Views of Japanese Art,” draws from an alluring selection of the never-before-exhibited permanent collection of Japanese woodblock prints at The Lilley Museum of Art as well as from private collections of Japanese prints, paintings, ceramics, baskets and mixed media objects. The title of the exhibit, inspired by Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai’s famous print series, Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, explores a wide range of themes integral to Japanese art – including the representation of animals, landscapes, water, poetry, wabi-sabi, Kabuki theatre and much more.
