Virtual event, register HERE.

Nozomi Naoi, Assistant Professor of Art History, Yale-NUS, Singapore

During the early 20th century, Japan experienced radical social and political change resulting from modernization, urbanization, and Westernization. The Shin Hanga movement responded to this cultural climate by embracing both modernity and traditional Japanese aesthetics. Beauty prints were especially important in highlighting elements of nostalgia and modernity. Nozomi Naoi examines these beauties in the context of the era and how they connect to visual media in Japan today.
