Yokohama Museum of Art Collection “Aspects of Japan’s 160-year Relationship with the West”
This event has ended.
This exhibition of the museum’s collection, overlapping with the anniversaries of the Yokohama Museum of Art and the opening of Yokohama Port, reexamines the relationship between Japan and the West. Many exhibitions dealing with the opening of Yokohama Port focus on the reception and development of Western-style expressions in the late Edo (1603-1867) and Meiji Periods (1868-1912) or the activities of painters, printmakers, and photographers who came to Japan during this era. However, this exhibition, which is not restricted to a single era, concentrates on several topics related to the way in which different cultures resonated with each other during the lengthy period that stretched from the opening of Yokohama Port in 1859 to the post-World War II era.
