Seduction & Printer's Eye Tour

Available February 20 – May 10, 2015
Download free on iTunes or Google Play

Enjoy a tour of the Seduction: Japan’s Floating World and The Printer’s Eye: Ukiyo-e from the Grabhorn Collection exhibitions with the museum’s curators as your personal guides. Available in English. 

Laura Allen, the museum’s curator of Japanese art, along with renowned scholars of Japanese art, Melinda Takeuchi, Timon Screech and Laurence Kominz, will be your personal guides on this exploration of the complex and alluring art of Japan’s floating world.

In Edo Period Japan (1615–1868), the phrase “floating world” evoked a pleasure-seeking way of life, free from everyday obligations. These two simultaneous exhibitions explore the floating world through more than 110 objects dating back to the 17th century. While Seduction features items meant largely for the upper class—including paintings, kimonos and a 58-foot-long scroll imagining a visit Japan’s most famous pleasure quarter in rich detail—The Printer's Eye focuses on a rarely seen assemblage of exquisite Japanese wood block prints. 

Use the app to look deeper and unlock the coded scenes in these elaborate artworks. See them as their original audience might have once seen them, while considering the complicated intersection of art, desire and industry.
