Virtual Event

Join the Asian Arts Council for an illuminating online lecture on the aesthetics of the Meiji period in Japan (1868-1912). Recent scholarship and exhibitions on the Meiji period give us a much clearer idea of the development of the arts and aesthetics during the highly complex period in Japanese history. Hollis Goodall, who retired from her post as Curator of Japanese Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in 2023, will outline the period in chronological order to link the historical changes with artistic evolution in painting and the decorative arts.


Please note, this session will be conducted virtually via Zoom.
