The symposium will explore three key aspects of the late work and life of Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849). What was Hokusai saying in his art? How did he use different media to convey his vision to the world? Who was he working and communicating with? Leading scholars will provide brief provocations, followed by responses from a small panel, before throwing open the debate to the audience.Refreshments will be provided on the afternoon of both days.
Symposium sessions will be punctuated by a public lecture, Hokusai and the art of defying old age, which requires a separate ticket.
