In this series of four linked lectures, join Dr Mary Redfern, Curator of Edo in Colour: Prints from Japan’s Metropolis, to explore the detail of these exquisite artworks and the vibrant world they conjure. Offering insights into our new exhibition, Dr Redfern will reveal how prints helped shape and present the identity, vitality and place of Edo, and how Chester Beatty collected these prints and books for his Dublin Library.
These lectures are pre-recorded and will premiere at the times stated. Lectures 1 and 4 will be followed by a live Q&A with Curator, Dr Mary Redfern.
