Onchi Kōshirō: Affection for Shapeless Things

October 16, 2021-January 10, 2022
Onchi Kōshirō is emblematic of the midcentury sōsaku hanga, or creative print, movement in Japan as one of its major artists and its main advocate. Artists of this self-defined group proudly conceived, carved, and printed their own works. They did not feel that the traditional ukiyo-e method, in which the tasks of designing, carving, and printing were separated among specialists, allowed for true creative expression.

Hiroshi Senju's Waterfalls for Chicago

November 13, 2021-March 13, 2022
Hiroshi Senju (born 1958) has created his signature Waterfall works for the Art Institute, specifically for display in the gallery designed by Ando Tadao. The painter has tailored the scale and lighting of the works to best suit the distinctive space, treating the exhibition as a collaboration between himself and the architect through time. The paintings are a gift to the Art Institute from the artist.

Upcoming Exhibition

The Golden Age of Kabuki Prints

January 15-April 10, 2022 and April 16-June 26, 2022
The drama of Kabuki theater was most successfully conveyed in the prints of the Katsukawa School of artists because they captured the individual characteristics of each actor. This exhibition is drawn from the more than 700 Katsukawa School prints in the Art Institute’s collection. This exhibition will consist of two rotations, the first running January 15–April 10, 2022, and the second covering April 16–June 26, 2022. Please note the gallery will be closed April 11–15.
