Chelsea Foxwell, associate professor of art history at the University of Chicago, presents "Making Modern Japanese-Style Painting: The Past and Present of Nihonga." She discusses Kano Hōgai's 1888 painting, "Merciful Mother Kannon," which was reproduced on a cloisonné vase on view in the AMAM exhibition "The Enchantment of the Everyday." Foxwell explores the paradox of "modern" traditional-style Japanese painting and considerations for its future. A reception will follow and galleries remain open until 7:30 p.m.
