Exhibition: Traditions Transfigured: The Noh Masks of Bidou Yamaguchi / New Orleans, LA

09/25/2015 - 01/10/2016

This exhibition features work by the Japanese artist Bidou Yamaguchi (b. 1970). Trained to make reproductions of historic Japanese Noh masks, the artist has, since 2003, radicalized this traditional idea and practice. YamaguchiĄĮs masks apply the forms, techniques, transformative spirit, and mysterious elegance of Noh masks to iconic female portraits from the European art historical canon, as well as to Kabuki actor prints by Sharaku, JapanĄĮs enigmatic eighteenth century portrait master. This exhibition is supported by JFNY Grant for Arts and Culture.
