Reception: sushi and sake tasting
Saturday, October 29th
2 – 4 pm
State of the Art Digital Technology has contracted with Museums to trace original works, and create the most unique replica that can’t be detected by the human eye. These pieces are now available in grand sizes and will make the modern office pop with a sublime cultural twist.
This exhibition presents a selection of works by Hokusai, Hiroshige and others (produced during Japan’s Edo period 1600–1868) from the Hiraki Ukiyo-e Collection
The exhibition was originally at Consulate General of Japan in San Francisco in April, 2016. Hitachi uses its world top class digital imaging technology to generate the Ukiyo-e digital prints. This state -of -the art technology was exhibited for the first time in the United Sates.
The Digital Imaging Systems developed by Hitachi and Hibiya Computer Systems, has the mission of spreading the “beauty and excitement” of precious paintings and cultural heritage to the whole world as well as handing it over to future generations. It is highly acclaimed in terms of digital repair and restoration in Japan as well as overseas. This technology has been utilized in many restoration and archiving projects of cultural properties including “Uffizi Museum” and “Picture Scrolls of The Tale of Genji.”
Sushi, was the "fast food" for the people of Edo Japan and will served at the exhibition in line with the theme along with sake tasting.
