Life in Edo | Russel Wong in Kyoto

16 April to 17 October 2021 

Asian Civilisations Museum 

Life in Edo | Russel Wong in Kyoto explores Japanese art and culture through two mediums – woodblock prints and photography. The woodblock prints section looks at lifestyles and trends of Edo period Japan (1603 – 1868), including people's travels, ideas on beauty, pets, food and entertainment. The other component explores the beauty of nature and architecture of Kyoto today. It also captures the vanishing traditions of the geisha (geiko in Kyoto dialect) community through the lens of Singaporean photographer Russel Wong.  

The exhibition plays on the notion of duality: past and present, print and photography, Edo (today’s Tokyo and current capital) and Kyoto (the old capital). One side focuses on the past and the other looks at the present, yet the exhibition will attempt to show that past trends and lifestyles are still relevant to us today, and are a big part of what draws people to Japan.
