Visual Journals from AsiaThe Early 20th Century Prints and Etchings of Paul Jacoulet, Elizabeth Keith & Lilian Miller
September 18, 2014 — January 10, 2015
Intercontinental travel, communication, and cultural exchanges have become routine in the
age of globalization — yet only a century ago, Westerners with in-depth experience about Asia and Asian cultures were few and far between. Visual Journals From Asia presents etchings and woodblock prints by Paul Jacoulet (France, 1896-1960), Elizabeth Keith (UK, 1887-1956) and Lilian May Miller (USA, 1895-1943), three artists in the early twentieth century who spent significant parts of their lives and careers in Asia, including visits to Japan, China, Mongolia, Korea, the Philippines and the islands of the South Seas. This exhibition explores distinctive ways in which these artists' works were shaped by their experiences of travel and cross-cultural encounters, and raises broader questions about intercultural lives and perspectives.
Organized by Jinyoung Jin, Associate Director of Cultural Programs at the Charles B. Wang Center, the exhibition was made possible through the generous loan from Dr. Young-dahl Song Collection, and support from the Japan Center at Stony Brook University.
