Playful Heart: Cats in Ukiyo-e Prints

What was ukiyo-e to people during the Edo period? One of many answers to this question is asobi gokoro, literally translated as "playful heart." Japan Society Gallery Director Miwako Tezuka talks with Mitsunobu Satō, Director of the Hiraki Ukiyo-e Foundation, about the playfulness abundantly expressed in the cat prints from his foundation.

Followed by a reception.

Tickets: $18/$15 Japan Society members, seniors & students (includes exhibition admission)
