Current Exhibition

Fantastic Landscapes: Hokusai and Hiroshige

Through October 11, 2021
In the 19th century, Japanese printmaking saw two concurrent trends: an intensification of color and a rise in the popularity of landscape images. ​​Capitalizing on these two trends were the most successful print designers of their time, Katsushika Hokusai (1760­–1849) and Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858). Their daring color schemes formed fantastic landscapes that fueled worldwide demand for Japanese prints.

Upcoming Exhibitions

Onchi Kōshirō: Affection for Shapeless Things

Oct 16, 2021-Feb 14, 2022
Onchi Kōshirō is emblematic of the midcentury sōsaku hanga, or creative print, movement in Japan as one of its major artists and its main advocate. Artists of this self-defined group proudly conceived, carved, and printed their own works. They did not feel that the traditional ukiyo-e method, in which the tasks of designing, carving, and printing were separated among specialists, allowed for true creative expression.

Hiroshi Senju's Waterfalls for Chicago

November 13, 2021-March 13, 2022
Hiroshi Senju (born 1958) has created his signature Waterfall works for the Art Institute, specifically for display in the gallery designed by Ando Tadao. The painter has tailored the scale and lighting of the works to best suit the distinctive space, treating the exhibition as a collaboration between himself and the architect through time. The paintings are a gift to the Art Institute from the artist.
