Information

One of the foremost masters of the Japanese art of woodblock printing, Toshusai Sharaku, is the subject of "Sharaku Interpreted by Japan's Contemporary Artists", an exhibition which opens at Chiang Mai University's Art and Culture Centre on Aug 6 and is due to run until the 25th of that month. Held in collaboration with the Japan Foundation, the exhibition is not meant to be an overview of work by this Edo-period artist who is best known for his inimitable bust portraits of kabuki actors; it is rather a reinterpretation of his legacy as seen from the perspective of his contemporary compatriots working in the field of art and graphic design. There will be an opening reception on Aug 6, starting at 5pm. The art centre is located on Nimmanhaemin Road, Chiang Mai and is opens daily (except Mondays) from 9am to 5pm. The exhibition is scheduled to move to Bangkok at the end of next month. It will open at the Ratchadamnoen Contemporary Art Centre on Ratchadamnoen Klang Avenue on Aug 30 where it will continue until Sept 18.
