Arts Thursday 27 October.
ASIAN INTERSECTIONS and YOSHITOSHI
This Thursday, join Maisy Stapleton for the second discussion in a special series, Asian Intersections, examining how we intersect with Asia through culture and art.
The program will also focus on the exhibition of Japanese woodblocks at the Art Gallery of NSW Yoshitoshi: One hundred aspects of the moon.
In the second of a two-program interview, Jackie Menzies OAM, Emeritus Curator of Asian Art at the Art Gallery of NSW and President of The Asian Art Society of Australia continues the series Asian Intersections, focussing on places where listeners can go to further discover and explore Asian art in Sydney and beyond, as well as some of the artists whose work can be seen in Sydney. She also talks about the role of TAASA, the Asian Art Society of Australia.

Yoshitoshi: One hundred aspects of the moon
This exhibition, at the Art Gallery of NSW until 20th November, showcases all 100 works by the Japanese Woodblock printer Tsukioka Yoshitoshi. The works were all created between 1885 to 1992 and it is a rare opportunity to see all of the works together as few galleries across the world possess the full set.
Join Assistant Curator of Asian Art at the Art Gallery of NSW, Natalie Seiz as she speaks to Maisy Stapleton about the stories behind the works and the life and work of Yoshitoshi, one of Japan’s master printmakers.
