What is Japanese art? The images this question evokes vary by country and individual. These images may depend on a particular country’ s history of cultural exchange with Japan, or may even be formed on biased or inaccurate information. Through the experiences that museums provide, however,visitors are able to “discover” fresh and stimulating aspects of Japanese art, as well as its cultural and historical contexts, that are entirely different from, or may even contradict, their previous knowledge and understanding. This symposium will explore the questions of what museums have accomplished so far, are able to do now, and should pursue in the future in order to allow visitors to think beyond stereotyped images of Japanese art, while broadening their understanding and appreciation of it.
