JapanAmerica: Points of Contact, 1876–1970

Cornell University's Johnson Museum of Art presents an exhibition highlighting Japan-America exhibition exchange.

August 27, 2016 10:00am to December 18, 2016 5:00pm

Focusing on Japan’s place in major international exhibitions held in the Americas from 1876 onward, and finishing with a look at Japan’s first world’s fair held in Osaka in 1970, JapanAmerica will explore the roles of art, design, and display in Japanese-American relations through a carefully selected group of objects, multimedia components, and original scholarship.

This exhibition has been made possible in part by grants from the Terra Foundation for American Art, the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

In conjunction with this exhibition, the Johnson Museum will also highlight works from the permanent collection that illustrate the first wave of Japonisme and others that were on view at various international expositions.
