From Hokusai to Manga
“We are a group of women who meet weekly for artistic challenges, ‘Always on a Sunday’. We are curious about international cooperation and both old and new art. For the last year we have focused on Japanese art history and tried charcoal, ink, printing techniques and ceramics.
In April 2014, five of us (Anita Midbjer, Ann-Mari Simonsson, Karin Lundman Rehn, Else Bengtsson and Eva Johansson) travelled in Japan with an extensive cultural program that also included contemporary art (museums, art institutions in Kyoto and Tokyo, as well as meetings with contemporary artists).
During 2014 we will share our impressions by giving speeches of our experiences and give exhibitions of Japan-inspired pictures, mostly wood-cuts, at Umeå Art School, at Grubbebiblioteket and at Pilgatan Bokkafé.
Six young Japanese artist visit Umeå 10-18 October. Under the theme MA they will share their artistic expressions of the significance of the interspace between object … and human beings. Come to wee on Folkuniveristet or take part in workshops there at 17.00 to 20.00 the 15th of October.
