Our current Heritage Council intern in Conservation Adam Macklin, will discuss the treatment of Chester Beatty’s Japanese print collection in preparation for an exhibition in 2020. The lecture will be followed by a sneak preview of our future exhibition of Japanese woodblock prints from curator Dr Mary Redfern. Opening at the museum in summer 2020, Edo in Colour will explore the rich vitality of life in this bustling metropolis, from buskers and teahouse beauties to actors, entertainers, courtesans and star-crossed lovers.
A glass of wine will be served after the lecture.
Location: Lecture Theatre at the Chester Beatty
