    [Mia Curator Talk for Exhibition Tour in Japan: Masterpieces from the Japanese Painting Collection] 

    After six years of planning, a special exhibition of masterpieces from the Japanese painting collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia) opened at the Suntory Museum of Art in Tokyo on April 14, 2021. Despite rain, around 400 people attended the press preview the previous day.

    Tokyo is the first of the four stops for the tour, organized by the Yomiuri Shimbun, which will bring the exhibition onward to Fukushima, Shiga, and Yamaguchi over the course of one year. The lead curator of the exhibition, Dr. Andreas Marks, the Mary Griggs Burke curator and head of the Japanese and Korean art department at Mia, will walk us through this exhibition on Thursday, May 20th at 6 p.m. via Zoom.

    Please join us!
