FUN DIP: An Extended and Remixed Dance Party 

When: Fri., Nov. 11, 7 p.m. 2016

Multi-panel sets of Japanese woodblock prints were popular in the West during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Though the panels collectively told a story, they were not prized as fine art in Japan and often made their way to the U.S. as packing material for pricier items. Panels that were meant to go together became separated, and the collections on view at museums are often incomplete. For the Ackland exhibit Extended Remix: Contemporary Artists Meet the Japanese Print, six artists were commissioned to fill in the spaces in a set of prints. Employing various media—ink and watercolor, mixed-media, Photoshopped drawings—their responses jolt antiquated iconography with the shock of the new. In keeping with the spirit of remixing, the Ackland is throwing a dance party to celebrate the exhibit, with music from WYXC deejays and hosted by Ely Kim, whose digital prints appear in the show. —David Klein
