Seduction: Japan’s Floating World explores the creative explosion unleashed by the new entertainment districts established in Edo (present-day Tokyo) during the late 1600s. Both a state of mind and a locale, the term “floating world” refers to the pleasures available in brothel districts and Kabuki theaters of the city, whose population approached a million by the end of the century....   [more]

Robert Arneson revolutionized the medium of clay, transforming it from a “craft” medium into “fine art.” Over a career of more than 40 years--frequently using himself as a subject--he explored ideas for art that were outside the conventional repertory, including those involving physical pain and psychological expression. Moreover, he did not flinch at sensitive topical subjects, in...   [more]

During medieval and early-modern times, the Japanese theatrical art of Noh developed from a form of popular performance to the solemn, abstract drama it is today. Noh’s later popularity with the ruling shogunate enabled kabuki theater, which came out of the raucous atmosphere of the pleasure quarters, to flourish during the Edo period (1615–1868). This exhibition of 25 works presents masks, pr...   [more]

After 1840, Honoré Daumier (France, 1808–1879) made numerous prints for the popular press that deal with art theory, the public reception of painting, and the performing arts.

During the 17th and 18th centuries, European artists increasingly rendered in prints and drawings the new and traditional spaces in which people could view, buy, and converse about art. The images in this installation depict different sites in the rapidly evolving art world—some real and some more imaginary—where art was created, displayed for the public, sold, or discussed.
