5881865Floating Worlds: Japanese Woodcuts
DateSaturday 28th September 2019 to Sunday 12th January 2020
DescriptionCome with us on a journey to explore the 'floating worlds' of Japan through woodblock prints from the Edo period (1615-1868). The style of prints on display is known as Ukiyo-e, which means 'pictures of the floating world'. Ukiyo-e prints show pleasurable activities in beautiful surroundings and often have deeper meanings. Guided by haiku poetry, the exhibition invites you to mindfully experience the sights of 19th century Japan. Explore the city of Edo (now called Tokyo), visit the Kabuki theatre, watch fireworks and peek into private spaces. To get some air, take a stroll through the Japanese countryside, see the sea or climb high into the mountains.
