Tsuruya Kōkei: Modern Kabuki Prints Revised & Revisited

  • USC Pacific Asia Museum 46 North Los Robles Avenue Pasadena, CA, 91101 United States (map)

The exhibition presents all of Kōkei’s actor prints from 1984-1993. Because the artist limited his editions, such a complete collection is unprecedented. To explore the broader contours of Kabuki actor prints, Kōkei’s work contextualized by actor prints by Sharaku as well as two-dozen by contemporary Japanese and western artists. This comparative material is loaned from a leading private collection of modern Kabuki portraits.
