The Japan-America Society of Georgia is pleased to present a special program highlighting the unique role ART plays in US-Japan relations. Featuring Aaron Rio, the New York Met's Associate Curator of Japaense Art, and Brandon Sadler, Founder of Rising Lotus Studio, join us for a unique behind the scenes look into 17th century Fusuma-e and Kano School Artists, Kyoto Cultural Association's Tsuzuri Project preserving treasured pieces of Japanese art, and the metamorphisis of the Samurai Armor Exhibit at the High Museum of Art.
Aaron Rio is the Associate Curator of Japanese Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. He is a specialist of premodern Japanese painting. His work has been published in books such as The Reception of Chinese Art Across Cultures (Cambridge, 2014), Boundless Peaks: Ink Paintings by Minol Araki (Minneapolis Institute of Art, 2017), and many others. He holds a PhD from Columbia University, where he researched ink painting in the city of Kamakura during the fourteenth to the sixteenth centuries.
