Interpreting Japanese Culture in the UK
By John Reeve
Thursday 10 July at Asia House
Doors 6.30pm Talk 6.45-7.45pm
John Reeve, former Head of Education at the British Museum, spent two decades studying and working on the presentation of Japanese art to the Western public. Through his work on numerous Japanese exhibitions, two major Japan Festivals and the writing of three books introducing Japanese Arts, John Reeve is in a unique position to reflect on the interpretation of Japanese culture. He will discuss the changing contexts both in Britain and Japan and share his insights for potential dialogue and possible misinterpretation.

Presented in association with the Japan Society.
