Date : 28 Feb 20 – 4 Oct 20

Open 10am–5pm daily

Venue: NGV International

Level 1, Asian Art temporary exhibitions

Free entry

The exhibition investigates the increasing socially liberated status of Asian women with the inclusion of major works by young female artists of the era and features rare large-scale paintings by young Japanese artists and modernist colour prints produced with the refined techniques of traditional ukiyo-e. The exhibition also features fashion of the era, including women’s and men’s kimonos and related accessories. Popular culture and interior design will be represented with beautifully crafted glassware, lacquer ware and bronze ware, as well as street posters, magazines and graphic design.

This exhibition is the result of a focused collecting strategy to build the NGV’s holdings of visually inspiring art and design from this fascinating and little recognised era of Asian art. For more information, please click HERE
