Between Worlds

June 17 – July 31, 2022

Kentler International Drawing Space is pleased to present Between Worlds – Mokuhanga, an extensive exhibition of contemporary Japanese woodblock prints by 19 artists from around the world.

The Mokuhanga Sisters is an international print collective of nine artists who met at the renowned MI-LAB Residency in Japan. Between Worlds – Mokuhanga features their work alongside teachers, students, and others associated with the residency programs first founded by Keiko Kadota in 2011. An earlier iteration of the exhibition was shown at the Southern Vermont Arts Center from December 11,
2021, to March 27, 2022.

This broad show of more than 50 prints explores the expansion of traditional Japanese woodblock printing (mokuhanga) into the global contemporary art world. Mokuhanga is a sustainable and subtle medium that lends itself to innovation. Between Worlds – Mokuhanga showcases the versatility of the
technique, which is at once deeply rooted in the past and relevant to contemporary life.

In conjunction with this show, Focus on the Flatfiles: Between Worlds includes 14 prints by seven artists from the Kentler Flatfiles. A brochure with an essay by the Mokuhanga Sisters and April Vollmer accompanies the exhibitions.
