Cover thumbnail for EXH - 2010 The Meiji Dilemma EXH - 2010 The Meiji Dilemma

With the rapid modernization of Japanese society during the Meiji Period (1868-1912) came the dilemma for artists of how to respond to their changing lives. The old patronage system was disappearing, and new clients were needed. What types of art would be appropriate, and how would they be made? As politics and economics evolved, what roles should artists play in the new Japan. What about the old Japan? This exhibition will explore these questions, and objects for display will be chosen and explained by students in the Art History Seminar 186C "Arts of Meiji Japan."
