Educators who work with students of all ages are invited to explore how Japan Society’s new exhibit Hiroshi Sugimoto: Gates of Paradise can connect with your curriculum and classroom objectives. Explore Japanese art from an innovative global perspective in which classical nanban screen paintings and contemporary photographs are juxtaposed highlighting the historical cross-cultural interactions between Japan and Europe during the medieval period.
