*In-person participants must register by 12:40 p.m.

Location: Hybrid in person/online meeting via Zoom
(prior entry required for all participants)
In-person Tokyo Fuji Art Museum, Museum Theater
Access : https://www.fujibi.or.jp/visit/getting-here/
Organizer: JAHS
Co-Organizer : Tokyo Fuji Art Museum, the Genji-e Database Study Group
Overview: The recent “Yamato-e : Traditions of Beauty from the Imperial Court” exhibition at the Tokyo National Museum was the first such exhibition to be held in 30 years, since 1993. The Nezu Museum's concurrent "The Masterpieces of Northern Song and Song Calligraphy and Painting" exhibition also revealed the historical situation surrounding Japan when Yamato-e painting was being established. When confronted with the Northern Song paintings, we realized that the term "Yamato-e" still today evokes a sense of Japan's cultural inheritance from the Heian period. The culture surrounding The Tale of Genji may have played a role in this inherited sensibility. In March 2024, a major exhibition on The Tale of Genji will be held at the Tokyo Fuji Art Museum, based on the interdisciplinary “Genji-e Database Study Group,” a project spearheaded for many years by the JAHS member INAMOTO Mariko (Keisen Women's University). This symposium and exhibition tour will hopefully provide an opportunity to reconsider how the discourse and art forms surrounding The Tale of Genji have contributed to Japan's cultural history.

○ JAHS Museum Committee Symposium

Career Transitions for Curators-Case Studies and Merits/Demerits-
Date/time: February 11, 2023 (Sat.), 13:00 – 17:00
Location: In-person with an option for online streaming via Zoom (prior reservations required for all participants)

In-person sessions will be held at:
140th Anniversary Memorial Auditorium, 1st Floor, Building No.1, Osaka Metropolitan University

Access:
https://www.omu.ac.jp/about/campus/sugimoto/

Organizer: Museum Committee, JAHS
With the support of:
  The Japanese Council of Art Museums, Japanese Association of Museums, Japan,
The Japanese Council of Art Museums (TBC), Japan Association for Arts
Management (TBC), Association for the Study of Cultural Resources (TBC), Japan
Museum Management Academy (TBC)
Overview: Symposium Goals
Members of the curatorial profession often go through career transitions. Although their youthful aspiration to become a curator -- “I want to be a curator!” -- might be unwavering, there are countless examples of people changing jobs, whether moving to other museums or galleries, or taking up university teaching positions. This reflects the reality that curatorial career development differs considerably from that of other academic professionals and researchers.
Why, then, do curators often change careers? A curator’s own academic specialty or specific family circumstances can be easily imagined as causes, but there also may be many other factors at work.
With these thoughts in mind, this year's East-West Joint Symposium of the Museums and Galleries Committee will focus on the theme of "Career Transitions for Curators." We have invited a variety of people in our field who have made career transitions, and those who have not, to talk about their experiences. Continuing on from earlier JAHS Museum Committee Symposium themes, “We Don't Need Curators! - Challenging the Notion of Necessity for Curators –" (2008) and "New Curators Today: The Present and Future of Recruitment" (2012), this symposium invites participants to contemplate the overall career of a curator.
We hope that young students who aspire to become curators, as well as those who are currently working as curators, will participate.

In addition, whether or not you will be attending this symposium, we hope that you will contribute to our consideration of this subject by completing a survey on careers in museum curation prior to the symposium.

○ JAHS Eastern Division General Meeting
Chair: SATO Doshin
Symposium: Who Creates the Art History of One’s Own Country? Images Defined by Oneself and by Others.
Date/time: April 1, 2023 (Sat.)
13:00 --
Location: Online meeting via Zoom (prior reservations required)
Organized by: JAHS
Overview: The “history of Japanese art” compiled during the latter half of the 19th through early 20th centuries at first revealed a major between the Japonisme of the West which revered ukiyo-e and decorative arts, and traditional Japanese aesthetic principles based on the arts of the aristocracy, military ruling class and Buddhism. This gap eventually was closed in Japanese scholarship. Another major gap between self and other can be seen in the history of Chinese painting, which centers on so-called Southern school styles in China, and Northern school styles in Japan. Then we might ask, what has happened in Europe? This symposium will explore several examples of how awareness of self and other has occurred within each country’s history of its own art.

Symposium: Lost Spaces and Times
Date/time: April 9, 2023 (Sun.)
13:00 -- 16:20
Location: Online meeting via Zoom (prior reservations required)
Organized by: JAHS
Overview: Many places and times have slipped through the cracks of the history of art, and as a result, many works of art have been lost. How to envision and study these lost works is one of the major challenges in art historiography. In this symposium, we will discuss several important examples of monumental architecture and explore the effectiveness and potential of research on such lost spaces and art. Through this presentation of the latest types of approaches to such issues, restoration plans and other aspects of this study, we hope to fill in these temporal and material cracks in our understanding of the art of the past.

Organized by: The Museum Yamato Bunkakan, JAHS
Related exhibition: The Art of Saké, a Gift from the Heavens
Overview: Saké -- the Japanese word for alcoholic beverages -- is deeply rooted in culture, faith and cuisine. It is also closely connected to the history of art. The Museum Yamato Bunkakan's special exhibition, The Art of Saké, a Gift from the Heavens, traces the history of East Asian art created from antiquity to the early modern era through the relationships between saké, the gods and people. This symposium, held in conjunction with the exhibition, will provide a forum for the consideration of the myriad roles played by saké in art production and how it has fostered cultural and human interaction, primarily in China, Japan and other East Asian countries, as well as in the West.

○ JAHS Museum Committee Symposium

Museums Under COVID-19
Date/time: March 27, 2021 (Sat.), 14:00 – 16:30
Location: Online meeting via Zoom (See below for how to participate)
Organizer: Museum Committee, JAHS
With the support of:
  The Japanese Council of Art Museums, Japan Association for Arts Management
Overview: The Covid-19 pandemic greatly affected society in general and museum operations in particular during fiscal 2020. Under Covid "new normal" conditions, people's everyday lives were unavoidably and greatly changed. Museums experimented with how to respond to these necessary changes in terms of their operations, research and visitor attendance. ICOM and the ??ASSOC NAME?? have already compiled information regarding this response, and have held symposia, thereby providing opportunities for information exchange. On the other hand, each museum's situation is different and we cannot deny that we are still groping for ways to deal with this situation. Opportunities for information exchange are being established where possible, and in such settings we should share and discuss the problems confronting us.
Through its presentations from different aspects of this situation confronting museums and exhibitions, this symposium will provide a grasp of the current situation, allowing us to debate and share how to address the serious problems confronting all of us and learn about our shared issues.
