This exhibition celebrates the work of renowned Japanese printmaker Toshi Yoshida exploring the artist’s process, as well as his international travels. Yoshida’s woodblock prints are associated with the sosaku-hanga movement in Japanese art, which re-imagined the collaborative enterprise of printmaking by focusing on the artist as the sole creator versus traditional methods which compartmentalized skills into different rolls such as draftsman, carver, printer and publisher.

Tree to Mountain was guest curated by professors Hiroshi Kitamura and Xin Wu in conjunction with the seminar course Woodblock Exhibition Curation (ARTH 330) and installed as part of the Visual Cultures of East Asia program presented by the Muscarelle Museum of Art, the Asian and Middle Eastern Studies Program, and the Reves Center for International Studies.
