What to Watch:
We have no notes for this one but I did find a playlist by Japan House LA about the exhibition. I’ve been interested in the Japan House for a while now. They have a great blog and several other locations. The description for the playlist I’m recommending is as follows:
The Japanese have long revered their natural landscape, celebrating its bounty and the beauty of the changing seasons in art, literature, travel, and festivals. The power of nature is a central theme in Japanese culture, rooted in the belief that supernatural forces and beings are at work in all aspects of the natural realm. Depending on how humans behave toward nature and each other, these forces can be benign and bountiful, or angry and destructive, causing floods, earthquakes, pestilence and other damage.
Highlighting Japan’s iconic natural landscapes and supernatural beings believed to inhabit them, the NATURE/SUPERNATURE exhibition features more than sixty woodblock prints from the coveted Scripps College collection by some of Japan’s finest artists. The exhibition is available via an online.
