Lecture by Dr. Kazuko Kameda-Madar (UHM and UH-West Oahu) on her recently published book, Imagery of the Orchid Pavilion Gathering: Visualizing Tokugawa Cultural Networks. This monograph examines the cultural networks that connected people during the Edo period (1603-1868) by surveying a wide range of visual representations of the Orchid Pavilion Gathering. This study explains how artists of different social classes and artistic lineages used classic themes as a symbol of refined cultural amusement and authority. Their shared ideology and connections were often manifested in the pictorial representations of assemblages. This event will be presented both in person and via zoom webinar.
