BEYOND NIHONGA: TRADITION MEETS MODERNISM IN JAPANESE FIGURE PAINTING BY DARIA MELNIKOVA
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2 PM AT SEIZAN GALLERY 521 W 26TH STREET NEW YORK, NY 10001
SEIZAN Gallery welcomes Daria Melnikova, Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer at the Mary Griggs Burke Center for Japanese Art at Columbia University, for a unique gallery talk on Nihonga painter Eri Iwasaki.
Melnikova, whose essay on Iwasaki is included in the exhibition catalog, will explore major artistic traditions in Japan and beyond as well as how contemporary artists rediscover and reinterpret the traditions of the past. Participants will look at The Tale of Genji and 17th-century genre paintings, Ukiyo-e prints, Renaissance portraiture, modern Yōga and Nihonga, and contemporary artists such as Yoshitomo Nara in conjunction with Iwasaki's work.
