Exhibition: Traditions Transfigured: The Noh Masks of Bidou Yamaguchi at Asia Society Texas Center / Houston, TX

10/25/2014 - 02/15/2015

This exhibition focuses on recent sculptures by Bidou Yamaguchi that apply the forms, techniques, transformative spirit, and mysterious elegance of Noh masks to iconic female portraits from the European art historical canon, and to Kabuki actor prints of Sharaku, Japan’s enigmatic 18th century portrait master. These works radically extend Noh’s transformation of souls across time and space, projecting them into new cultural and physical dimensions. This exhibition is supported by JFNY Grant for Arts and Culture.
