Late Hokusai: Thought, Technique, Society
Symposium at the British Museum
26-27 May 2017
The symposium will explore three key aspects of the late work and life of Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849). What was Hokusai saying in his art? How did he use different media to convey his vision to the world? And who was he working and communicating with? Leading scholars will provide brief provocations, followed by responses from a small panel, before throwing open the debate to the audience. Symposium sessions will be punctuated by public lectures.
