    The world's biggest shunga exhibition planned by British Museum

    Tim Clark (Mainichi)




    Nowadays, it is common to see the very best of Japanese culture being highlighted overseas. A case in point is "Shunga: sex and humor in Japanese art," a special exhibition at the British Museum opening on Oct. 3.


    Shunga openly depicts sex between men and women. For 54-year-old Tim Clark, the appeal of shunga is that "it is rich in beautiful affection and humor." It has inspired many artists, such as Lautrec and Rodin, and Picasso owned 70 examples of the work.


    This unparalleled art form was born in Japan during the Edo period and contrasts with the world of western art, where the publication of erotic images was strictly regulated by the church. According to Clark: "Through shunga we can learn about the customs of the time, such as how men and women treated each other with such respect."


    The show includes a total of 165 works from the Edo period's most famous artists, such as Kitagawa Utamaro and Katsushika Hokusai. The exhibition does not just feature works from the British Museum, but also borrows from the collections of museums across Japan, Europe and the United States. Remarking that shunga was also a parody of the time's censorship of distribution channels and publication, Clark adds: "This will be the most comprehensive exhibition of shunga ever seen."


    There were some concerns from the Japanese Embassy in the U.K. that the exhibition "puts too much focus on sex." However, all staff at the museum supported the exhibition right from the planning stage. Any potential impact on children has been considered, so under-16s will be required to obtain permission from their parents to view the exhibition.


    Clark was first introduced to shunga as a 14-year-old at an Ukiyo-e exhibition in London. "I was struck by the beauty rather than the eroticism," he says. He believes that children visiting the exhibition will have the sensitivity to accept the tradition of Japanese art on display.


    Biography: Tim Clark is the head of the Japanese section at the British Museum. He was born in Hertfordshire, north of London. He is a graduate of Oxford University and specializes in Ukiyo-e.

    Sounds like a cool exhibition that I'd actually love to see.

    There was an exhibition in Japan recently of Japanese Ghouls n Ghosts as depicted through art. It was pretty terrific.
