Get an inside look at Hiroshige’s 100 Famous Views of Edo (feat. Takashi Murakami) as artist Takashi Murakami joins Joan Cummins, Lisa and Bernard Selz Senior Curator of Asian Art, for a conversation about artistic lineages, urban history, and environmental change.

The pair discuss Murakami’s new series of fantastical paintings that respond to Utagawa Hiroshige’s 100 Famous Views of Edo, a Brooklyn Museum treasure that is on view for the first time in 24 years. Cummins and Murakami reflect on Hiroshige’s art-historical impact and the artist’s role as a witness to environmental and social change.
