This exhibit opens February 11, 2017 at the Cincinnati Art Museum:
The Cincinnati Art Museum’s Howard and Caroline Porter Collection is the largest repository of the woodcuts of Kosaka Gajin outside the family in Tokyo, Japan. This exhibition celebrates his prints capturing the beauty of Japan’s landscape and architectural monuments in a way that is totally modern in its individualized expression, not unlike the era’s action painting in the West. This exhibition of his later woodcuts will be the first solo exhibition of the artist’s work in the United States.
Ticketed – free for members.

The CAC lobby is designed to bridge the inside and outside, creating a hybrid between art and experience.
Experience life in the 1950s by putting your feet up on the couch, playing a record, peeking in drawers and rolling in the grass in a full-size prefabricated Lustron home built inside the museum at the Ohio History Center.
The CAC is organizing the first major survey of era-defining artist Caledonia Curry – better known as Swoon. Swoon is a pioneering social champion in a field traditionally dominated by men, machismo and activities deemed illegal; she has overcome every barrier to re-define what “street art” means today.
Throughout her career, Brazilian artist Sandra Cinto has developed a rich vocabulary of symbols and lines to create lyrical landscapes that swirl between fantasy and reality.
The chameleon-esque practice of Los Angeles-based artist Glenn Kaino utilizes sculpture, spectacle, video and performance to convey political restlessness and the uncanny blurring of news with fallacy.
