VISIONS OF JAPAN:
Photographs by Dr. Morton Huber with Prints of ‘The Floating World’
The Sechrest Gallery of Art will host an exhibition of Morton and Kyoko Ushio Huber’s extensive collection of Ukiyo-e prints alongside Dr. Huber’s equally extensive collection of photographs taken during his residence and travels in Japan in the 1960s and 70s.
This exhibition highlights what is clearly an historically significant collection of prints and will pair the genre images they contain with Dr. Huber’s large-scale black and white photographs of 20th century Japan. Placing historic images alongside newer ones will provide visitors to the Gallery with the unique opportunity to envision daily life in Japan in a new way; to see the worlds created by masters of Japanese printmaking, including Hokusai and Hiroshige, through a personal lens; and to appreciate the beauty of Japanese culture across history.
This exhibit will run from January 14, 2020 to February 27, 2020.
