A Japanese bestiary – Living with animals in Edo-Tokyo (XNUMXth-XNUMXth century)
From November 9, 2022 to January 21, 2023 at the Maison de la culture du Japon in Paris, 101 bis, Quai Jacques Chirac. 75015 Paris
This new exhibition of the MCJP evokes the history of the relations of the inhabitants of the city of Edo – which will become Tokyo in 1868 – with animals and testifies to the culture to which this coexistence gave birth. Co-organized with the Edo-Tokyo Museum, it brings together more than a hundred prints ukiyo-e, paintings and everyday objects. Along the route, the public will be able to understand this symbiosis between man and animal, as well as the attention paid to the natural environment which reigned in the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries in the city of Edo.
