Meetup: Tokyo Story Journey in the Footsteps of a a Master

The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is asking our support in promoting their free lecture series. 

I would love to be there and if there are no sessions scheduled at the studio I will be otherwise everyone please enjoy it.  MIA is an incredible resource for artist and should be visited often. 

Emily Allchurch , a London based artist trained at the Royal College of Art, discusses her "Tokyo Story" series, a collection of photographic light-box images that juxtapose a contemporary  look at the city with historical prints from more than 150 years ago.  Allchurch will describe her vision and process for creating these fascinating works which are on display in the permanent collection at the MIA. 

Using original artworks by Utagawa Hiroshige as a guide to cityscapes , she takes hundreds of photographs of a location then digitally combines select detail while editing out others to create a fictional scene, one that references history and modernity in a social narrative of time and place.  The historical images ground her contemporary vision, resulting in a fresh  vivid , and inspiring compilation of traditional and modern elements of Japanese's culture. 

As always the Minneapolis Institute of Art is looking forward to your visit.  

 Come and be inspired by their free lecture series. 

This particular lecture was sponsored by the  Mary and Mark Fiterman Fund.
