THE FREER HOUSE AND THE DIA SUPPORT

ASIAN PACIFIC AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH


Join the DIA’s Friends of Asian Arts and Cultures, Friends of Detroit Film Theatre and the Freer House, Wayne State University for free viewings of the new documentary Edo Avant Garde. Edo Avant Garde reveals the story of how Japanese artists of the explosively creative Edo period (1615-1868) pioneered innovative approaches to painting that many in the West associate most readily with so-called modern art of the 20th century. Through groundbreaking interviews with scholars, priests, art dealers, and collectors in Japan and the U.S., the film explores how the concepts of abstraction, minimalism, and surrealism are all to be found in Edo painting. The documentary highlights the role of Detroit's Charles Lang Freer as a pioneering collector of Edo period Japanese art.
