Tokyo is the political, cultural and economic center of Japan, the largest urban hub on the planet, holding 35 million people, fully one-fifth of Japan's population. The city has continually reinvented itself since its founding over 400 years ago, when a small fishing village became Edo, the castle headquarters of the Tokugawa shoguns. Samuel C. Morse P'14, professor of art and the history of art and Asian languages and civilizations, focuses the talk on portrayals of Tokyo and its reinventions as depicted by print makers, photographers and artists from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. Many of the images will be included in an exhibition to be held at the Mead Art Museum in the fall of 2012: Re-Inventing Tokyo: Japan's Largest City in the Artistic Imagination, planned in conjunction with an Amherst class.
