It’s time. The wait is over. Urban Milwaukee is returning to hosting in-person events!

The Warehouse has invited Urban Milwaukee members to a curator-led tour of its exhibition, Art Japan: 2021-1921.

The exhibition, drawn from the collection of The Warehouse, contains some of Japan’s most important artists of the last 100 years.

With over 80 works in the exhibition from 18 artists, the art, ideas, and studio practice of each artist is shown in-depth, through multiple works.

Works by Tsukioka Kogyo and Toko Shinoda are a part of the exhibition.

The exhibition includes painting, drawing, modern and contemporary prints, silver and gold leaf constructions, as well as ceramics, basketry, textiles and fiber art.

Urban Milwaukee members are invited to join us on Tuesday, July 13 at 4:30 p.m. Curator Dr. Annemarie Sawkins will lead a tour of the exhibition. Light snacks will be provided.

This tour is free for Urban Milwaukee members, but an RSVP is required as space is limited. You may reserve up to two spots on the tour.

    Interesting. This time frame coincides exactly with the first 100 years of the Communist Party in China – Japan’s close neighbor and rival. I wonder if their conflicting relationship during this period is reflected in the art.
