JapanAmerica: Points of Contact is a major exhibition organized by the Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University surveys the role that international exhibitions and world’s fairs have played in artistic exchanges between these two cultures. Focusing on Japan’s place in major international exhibitions held on the American continent from 1876 onward, and finishing with a look at the first World’s Fair held in Osaka in 1970, this beautiful and diverse assembly of more than 100 works examines the influence of Japanese aesthetics on painting and printmaking, ceramics, metalwork, graphic design, advertising, bookbinding, and illustration. The exhibition also includes Japanese objects influenced by the West, as Japanese makers took pride in adopting Western forms and manufacturing techniques, while retaining the high level of craftsmanship and attention to detail for which they were famous.
