The Floating World:
A Dialogue of Japanese Prints, From Japan to Europe

27 October 2018 - 24 March 2019

Léon Dierx Museum | Saint-Denis | Reunion Island

The Floating World: A Dialogue of Japanese Prints, From Japan to Europe will showcase  a selection of Japanese prints from the Johannesburg Art Gallery (JAG), demonstrating the evolution of this art form between the 17th and the 19th century, while also exploring the main themes developed by the Japanese prints masters during this time. In parallel, a selection of prints from European artists from the end of 19th century, drawn from the collections of both museums, will attest to the strong Japanese influence on print art in the western world during the second half of the 19th century.
This new partnership between the two museums follows the success of a first exhibition, "From Manet to Picasso, Treasures of the Johannesburg Art Gallery and the Léon Dierx Museum" that took place in 2016-2017 and attracted over 21,000 visitors.

Public Lecture

The Mobilisation of South African Data within Rock Arts' Ritual Interpretations

13 November 2018 | 13.15
Origins Centre | Johannesburg

Public lecture by Romain Lahaye (Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne / IMAF) as part of the Public Lecture Series Rock Art and Symbolic Expression. A Southern Africa – France Dialogue

Apart from a few rare exceptions, the first theories tried to propose an interpretation of the rock and parietal figurations set in a religious register. Other recent approaches are based on the ontological particularities of the groups that produced these paintings and prints. Nevertheless, most of these researches have a common strain that emphasises the importance of ritual practices. The mobilisation of the latter through demonstrations can lead to different aspects of perception and may result in misunderstandings. The way in which the ethnographic and iconographic data are combined in rock arts' study has a significant influence on the findings produced. It now appears necessary to examine our own categories of analysis and to look into the historiography of our modes of interpretation.
