Join us for the official opening of Hanran: 20th-Century Japanese Photography.

This unforgettable exhibition, on view for the first time outside Japan, calls attention to the socio-political upheaval in 20th-century Japan, through photographs from the Yokohama Museum of Art.

Inspired by the Japanese word for flooding, overflow, or deluge, Hanran reflects early 1930s to 1990s Japan, as it unfolded in front of the camera’s mechanical eye.

This activity is free of charge and open to the public.
