Contemporary Japanese Prints Exhibition Ends Saturday


May 14, 2013 — The University of Wyoming Art Museum exhibition featuring contemporary Japanese prints, “Redefining the Multiple: 13 Japanese Printmakers,” ends Saturday, May 18.

“The exhibition features the work of Japanese artists whose formal training is in printmaking,” says Rachel Miller, assistant curator. “Although each of the participating artists' personal work has transitioned over the years -- and some is now more associated with other media -- printmaking and the production of multiples remains at the core of their creative processes.”

Artists included in the exhibition are Junji Amano, Shunsuke Kano, Hideki Kumura, Kiochi Kiyono, Saori Miyake, Shoji Miyamoto, Arata Nojima, Nobuaki Onishi, Kuseki Ono, Naruki Oshima, Chiaki Shuji, Marie Yoshik, and Toshinao Yoshioka. Four of the artists make three-dimensional objects and installations; two paint with printmaking tools and techniques; three use digital photography and technology; and the others use traditional and recognizable printmaking techniques.

Curated by Hideki Kimura, professor, Kyoto City University of the Arts, and Sam Yates, director, Ewing Gallery of Art & Architecture; the exhibition was organized for travel by the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
