Lecture “Modern Art and Mimeograph: From the Dawn to the Next Dawn”
On November 16, 2019, at Atelier 10 -48, as an event related to MEETS TO-SHA, Hisami Ueno, curator of the Museum of Modern Art, Wakayama, was invited and gave a lecture “Modern Art and Mimeograph: From the Dawn to the Next Dawn”.
This exhibition and lecture commemorate the production of the book “10 -48 The Pust and Future of Mimeograph”.
Hisami Ueno gave a lecture based on what she told us in the book.
This lecture introduces the first mimeographed printmaking work by the Museum of Modern Art, Wakayama AND before the birth of Yashoji Wakayama, a pioneer of mimeographed printmaking work.
I hope this article will be one of the materials to examine mimeographed print expression.
