The juried international exhibition Beauty of Mokuhanga: Discipline & Sensibility celebrates the Third International Mokuhanga Conference, which is being held outside of Japan for the first time. Mokuhanga, a traditional Japanese woodblock printing technique, is widely recognized through ukiyo-e prints that were popular during the Edo period (1603–1868).
The conference, scheduled for September 28 – October 1 at the Hawaii Imin International Conference Center, nurtures the discipline of mokuhanga and its special sensibilities, and also fosters its innovative uses.
Featuring 100 mokuhanga prints and hand-printed artists’ books by 68 artists from around the world, this exhibition presents the history of mokuhanga, and promotes the study, practice, and appreciation of mokuhanga printmaking in the global art community.
