Japanese Woodblock Prints showcases more than 40 lively prints dating from the 17th through 19th centuries from the Walters’ collection. Japanese woodblock prints are often credited to individual artists like Hokusai and Hiroshige. However, these celebrated and beautiful works of art are the products of masterfully orchestrated collaborations among publishers, artists, carvers, and printers; their distinct roles are explored in this exhibition.

Spencer Finch’s impressive light installation Moon Dust (Apollo 17), first presented at the 2009 Venice Biennale, will illuminate the BMA’s majestic Fox Court for the next seven years.

This exhibition features approximately 30 photographs by artists born in Vietnam, China, Japan, and Korea between 1929 and 1980. Each work explores a time of day, a reflection on legend or history, a past remembered and missed, or a future imagined and anticipated. The images also explore suspended time, periods of waiting or boredom. Some of these works are real-time images, others were created as a result of the time an artist spent immersed in the world of the image—the time required to manipulate the subject or to capture the image.

Through art created by Catonsville Nine activist Tom Lewis and elements of the documentary “Hit & Stay: a history of faith and resistance,” this exhibit explores the motivations and considers the consequences of civil disobedience, and contextualizes this protest in our present turbulent political climate.

Subverting Beauty features approximately two dozen works from sub-Saharan African’s colonial period (c. 1880–c.
