What you'll learn in this more art class:

Join International Arts & Artists (IA&A) for Art in Context: Japan, a panel discussion on Japanese and Japanese-American culture, identity, and the broader conditions impacting creative work and partnerships.

Panelists include Kei Ito, a visual artist whose exhibition Only What We Can Carry is currently on view at IA&A at Hillyer, and Laurel Lukaszewski, an installation and sculpture artist and director of White Point Studio. Additional panelists to be announced. A reception sponsored by Teaism and Matsukawaya will follow the discussion.

On view this month at IA&A at Hillyer, Kei Ito’s photo-based installation Only What We Can Carry takes the audience on a journey of grief, remembrance, and hope by examining today’s political climate through the lens of his own family’s history with immigration and the horrors of nuclear war.

The Art in Context series is part of IA&A’s International Partnership Initiative, which champions international work between American arts institutions and their counterparts abroad by creating a forum for discussion and discovery among leaders in the artistic, academic, diplomatic, and policy communities. Art in Context showcases artists and cultural organizations in the broader social, economic, and political context in which they exist.
