: Saturday, August 21,[masked]:30 PMMuseum Hopping 8: Ukiyo-e 2
There are two interesting Ukiyo-e (Japanese Woodcuts) exhibitions in Tokyo now. One of them is at Ota Memorial Museum of Art and is titled "Animals Depicted in Ukiyo-e." This exhibition showcases woodcuts depicting both real and imaginary animals. I initially overlooked this show but realized how interesting it looks after one of our member Yuu pointed me out about it. The other exhibition is at Ukiyo-e Tokyo and is titled "Monsters and Goblin Cats." This exhibition showcases woodcuts depicting imaginary creatures like goblin cat, one of the most common monsters in traditional Japanese ghost tales. I have never been to this museum, but it seems to be hosting interesting shows. I just saw the poster for this exhibition in this afternoon, and it is pretty nice. Let's enjoy playful imagination and skillful rendition of both real and imaginary worlds by Ukiyo-e artists from the Edo Era together.
