Mizuno Toshikata (1866–1908) Bouquet of Love (Ai no hanataba), 1900,

Pakistani, Indian and Japanese Treasures in Canberra

Join curators and experts, including London-based specialist Arjmand Aziz, to examine textiles from Pakistan and India in the Collection Study Room at the National Gallery of Australia and enjoy a guided tour of the recently re-hung galleries of Asian Art. In the afternoon, we will meet at the National Library of Australia for a tour of the exquisite collection of late Meiji kuchi-e in the exhibition Melodrama in Meiji Japan. Created as frontispieces for novels, the collection of wood-block prints, donated to the Library in 2011 by University of NSW Emeritus Professor Richard Clough (1921–2014), display the changing fortunes and fashions of the time. We will also have a chance to view the exhibition Waving the red flag: Chinese posters, 1949–1976.

The day will conclude with drinks at a member’s house to see a private collection.
