Redefining the Multiple

January 17, 2015 - April 26, 2015

This exhibition features the work of Japanese artists with foundations and formal training in printmaking. 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. Four artists make three-dimensional objects and installations, two paint with printmaking tools and techniques, three use digital photography and technology, and the others utilize traditional and recognizable printmaking techniques. Curated by Hideki Kimura, Kyoto City University of Arts, Kyoto, Japan; and Sam Yates, Director, Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture, University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Exhibition in Kalamazoo is made possible in part by the Joy Light Fund for East Asian Art Acquisitions and Exhibitions.
