The cultural space CentroCentro in Madrid opens today and until 30 January 2022 in its Operations Courtyard the exhibition Japan. A History of Love and War.
This exhibition, organised and produced by Evolucionarte in collaboration with CentroCentro, is the largest exhibition in Madrid dedicated to Japanese culture, comprising a selection of more than 200 pieces, divided into 11 sections, featuring works by the most prestigious Japanese artists of the time, such as Hiroshige, Utamaro, Hokusai and Kuniyoshi, together with impressive kimonos and samurai armour, fans and small everyday objects. The exhibition is divided into ten sections and meanders through the persuasive female world of the geisha, the legend of the faithful samurai warriors, the history of the birth of ukiyo-e and the famous shunga prints, rich in eroticism. The world of culture is immortalised in portraits of actors and scenes from the Nō and Kabuki theatres, and the world of nature is idealised in paintings of flowers, birds and landscapes.
