Between Tradition and Innovation: 

Japanese Art Collection at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

For our April General Meeting we will have the pleasure of hearing from Yayoi Shinoda, a Curatorial Assistant in the Department of East Asian Art at the Nelson-Atkins Museum. She will be introducing objects from pre-modern to contemporary Japan and talking about how tradition and innovation play a part in the arts of Japan. The objects she will be talking about will highlight two exhibitions currently on display at the Nelson-Atkins.

Yayoi’s primary research interest is Japanese art, which encompasses a wide range of mediums, including ceramics, paintings, textiles, and prints. She is the site curator of a traveling exhibition titled Into the Fold: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics from the Horvitz Collection at the Nelson, which is now on display in L7 in Bloch Building. Yayoi has a background in filmmaking, oil painting, and printmaking. She holds a B.F.A. in Film from Nihon University in Tokyo, Japan, a B.A. in Fine Arts and Art History from William Jewell College in Liberty, and a M.A. in Museum Studies from the University of Missouri – St. Louis. She is currently pursuing her second M.A. in East Asian Art History at the University of Kansas, with a focus on Japanese art.
