From October 11th, 2019 to March 22nd, 2020. Witness a period of socio-political upheaval in 20th-century Japan, through photographs from the Yokohama Museum of Art. Inspired by the Japanese word for flooding, overflow, or deluge, Hanran reflects 20th-century Japan, from the early 1930s to the 1990s, through the lenses of 28 significant photographers. See this unforgettable exhibition, on view for the first time outside Japan, which calls attention to the costs of nuclear warfare and Japan’s extraordinary recovery, all unfolding in front of the camera's mechanical eye. Organized by the Yokohama Museum of Art in collaboration with the Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery of Canada.
