Event Description

Koshashin showcases a singular collection of early Japanese photography. More than 250 rare photographs from the late 1800s reflect Japan’s transformation as it moved from feudalism into the modern world. Edmontonian Arlene Hall developed the collection over a 40-year period. It was a private treasure until its debut at the Art Gallery of Alberta, which organized the exhibition in 2009.

 

—Curated by Cathrine Crowston,

Deputy Director / Chief Curator, Art Gallery of Albert.
