A Third Gender: Beautiful Youths in Japanese Prints
March 10-June 11, 2017
Members Opening: March 9, 7:30 PM
A Third Gender: Beautiful Youths in Japanese Prints is the first exhibition in North America devoted to the portrayal of wakashu, or beautiful youths—a “third gender” occupying a distinct position in the social and sexual hierarchy of Japan during the Edo period (1603-1868). Featuring over 65 woodblock prints, as well as paintings, luxury objects and personal ornaments, A Third Gender illuminates the richness of lived experience in Edo society, where complex rules governed gender constructs. This groundbreaking exhibition offers a critical artistic and historical context for gender performance and sexual expression, topics that are particularly resonant within society today. Additional exhibition-related programming and events is forthcoming.
This exhibition was originally organized by the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto.
Music: "Shinzo no Tobira" by Mariah
