Tonight: Reverberations

Posted by novoscene on June 17, 2009

Reverberations-5 (1)If there’s one thing Oaklanders can relate to, it’s devastating fires and horrible earthquakes. The Mills College Art Museum obviously understands this. Its new exhibition brings us Japanese woodblock prints from the 1923 Kanto earthquake, which destroyed Tokyo, Yokohama, and Chiba. 100,000 people died, buldings were levelled — and so were the print shops. But surviving artists and publishers documented what they had seen with what tools they had left.  The results are amazing.

Opening Reception: Wednesday, June 17, 5:30 p.m.−7:30 p.m. The curator will do a walk-through of this historic exhibition at 6 p.m. 

Film screening: Hiroshi Teshigahara’s Woman in the Dunes,Wednesday, July 22 at 7 p.m.

Family printmaking workshop for all ages: Sunday, June 28 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
