In addition to Burton’s drawings, book illustrations and prints, an artfully-created scale model of her “Little House” will be on display in the gallery. The “Little House” was fabricated in Japan for a highly-anticipated exhibition held at the Takenaka Corporation Gallery A4 in Tokyo last summer in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the publication of Burton’s famous tale.

    Dick Bruna and Black Bears and Japanese Matchboxes

    On exhibit until March 8, 2019

    Open Fridays and Saturdays 11:00 AM - 6:00 AM
    (or by appointment)

    Katherine Small Gallery, 108 Beacon St,
    Somerville, MA 02143

    The work of the Dutch children's book author and illustrator is wildly popular in Japan. While Dick Bruna was writing and illustrating his earliest books for children, he was also designing book covers for mysteries and detective novels. On the other side of the world, Japanese artists and designers were designing matchbox labels. What do Dick Bruna's covers have to do with Japanese matchboxes? This exhibition finally answers that question by showing thirty-eight of Bruna's midcentury covers alongside thirty-eight vintage Japanese matchboxes.

    Atlantic Works Gallery, 80 Border St.,
    Boston, MA 02128

    Artists Christine Palamidessi and Bo Petran stir-up some Wabi-Sabi in East Boston. The quintessential Japanese aesthetic--irregular, intimate, unpretentious, earthy, murky, simple----meets the artists own Italian and Czech sensibilities. What results is a flowing visual umami tempered with classical beauty, existential grace and two zen gardens.

    February 11, 2019 - June 2, 2019

    McMullen Museum of Art, 2101 Commonwealth Avenue,
    Boston, MA 02135

    The McMullen Museum of Art at Boston College will present Eaglemania: Collecting Japanese Art in Gilded Age America, which celebrates and contextualizes Boston College’s iconic “golden eagle”: a monumental bronze sculpture of the University’s mascot. During its recent restoration, the sculpture was revealed to be a Japanese masterpiece from the Meiji period (1868–1912), according to exhibition organizers. The restored piece will be unveiled as the centerpiece of the exhibition, which will explore Meiji bronze production, the depiction of birds of prey in Japanese art, and the fascination of late nineteenth-century Americans—and Boston Brahmins in particular—with Japanese art and culture.

    BOOK TALK - American Sutra: Buddhism and the Incarceration of Japanese Americans DUring World War II

    Friday, February 22, 2019 from 4:15 PM to 6:00 PM

    Followed by book signing and reception from 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

    S020, Belfer Case Study Room, CGIS South,
    1730 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA 02138

    Presented by the Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies and Co-Sponsored by Japan Society of Boston, New England Japanese American Citizens League , Harvard Buddhist Studies Forum, Harvard Divinity School Center for the Study of World Religions, Harvard Pluralism Project, Program on U.S.-Japan Relations.

    Duncan Ryūken Williams will discuss his new book American Sutra: A Story of Faith and Freedom During the Second World War (Harvard University Press, Feb. 2019)  about Buddhism and the WWII Japanese American internment. The fact that the vast majority of Japanese Americans were Buddhists was responsible for why nearly 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry, two-third of whom were American citizens, were targeted for forcible removal from the Pacific coast states and incarcerated in remote interior camps surrounded by barbed wire. Ironically, their Buddhist faith also was also what helped the Japanese-American community endure and persist at a time of dislocation, loss, and uncertainty. Based on newly translated Japanese-language diaries of Buddhist priests from the camps, extensive interviews with survivors of the camps, and newly declassified government documents about how Buddhism was seen as a national security threat, Williams argues that Japanese American Buddhists launched one of the most inspiring defenses of religious freedom in U.S. history.

    Discussants: 

    DIANA L. ECK, Professor of Comparative Religion and Indian Studies & Fredric Wertham Professor of Law and Psychiatry in Society; Founder and Director, Pluralism Project, Harvard University

    The Lilypad  1353 Cambridge Street  
    Cambridge, MA 02139

    Hallelujah The Hills have been releasing critically acclaimed albums and touring the U.S. since 2007. Described by Spin as “criminally underappreciated” and lauded by Pitchfork for their “fist pumping anthems,” they’ve been declared “Boston legends” in their hometown and as having a “cult following and pockets of hardcore fans scattered throughout the country” by Stereogum. The band released their first two albums on Misra Records, assisted Titus Andronicus in making their breakout album The Monitor, and are one of the only bands to have ever toured with The Silver Jews. The Hills have also worked with Jealous Butcher Records, Re-Vinyl Records, and are the recipients of two Boston Music Awards. Their sound was creatively explained as “the kind of punk rock you’d expect on stage at the roadhouse from ‘Twin Peaks’” in the Boston Herald. Argo Arkestra will play music from the 1970's anime cartoon Star Blazers (Space Battleship Yamato in Japan), accompanied by live video manipulation of the scenes from the cartoon. Argo Arkestra is Adam Brilla, Chris Braiotta, Bear Brown, Tyler Derryberry, Ernie Kim (members of Broken River Prophet, Planet of Adventure, Gun Mother, Jernie/Dark Crystals/Slight Foxing/The Beagles)

    Take a chance and discover new and interesting Manga across all sorts of topics at this local Boston area Meet-Up group. From the organizer: "This month has traditionally been my chance to expose the membership to some romantically driven story line, be it dramatic, comedic, or just plain pretty. This year, I thought I would try and suggest a story that is focused on a family adjusting to a shock, and those around them trying to help out. Not to mention a bunch of yummy food! Sweetness & Lightning volume 1 and 2 By Gido Amagakure. Having lost his wife, math teacher Kouhei Inuzuka is doing his best to raise his young daughter Tsumugi as a single father. He’s pretty bad at cooking and doesn’t have a huge appetite to begin with, but chance brings his little family and one of his students, Kotori Iida, together for homemade adventures. With those three cooks in the kitchen, it’s no wonder this dinner table drama is so delicious."

    "Why the Fishhead Faces Left, and other tales of Japanese Foodworkers" - Discussion with Professor Merry White

    Thu, February 28, 2019 from 6:00PM

    Boston University George Sherman Union Building, 775 Commonwealth Avenue,
    Boston, MA 02215

    The Culinary Historians of Boston presents their February talk on Japanese foodworkers. Professor Merry White will share her study of the experience of food workers - domestic, industrial and artisanal - included observations and discussions of food work as high art and craft, as cultural script, as family engagement, and as environmental and nutritional work. Workers conveyed their senses of value, service, craftsmanship, artisanry, science and morality. Themes of bodywork, tools, and technique - and of regional distinction- in ingredients, dishes, technique and tools - were more dominant than any narrative of national culture. In stories of individuals we hear how food workers create value and meaning in their work, their products and in themselves.

    Hachioji Kuruma Ningyo Puppet Theater

    Jewett Auditorium, Wellesley College, 106 Central Street, Wellesley, MA 02481

    Tuesday, March 5, 2019 from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM


    Join us for a rare opportunity to experience a full-scale production of kuruma ningyo puppetry with chanting and live shamisen music. The Japan Society of Boston presents Nishikawa Koryu V, the fifth grand master of the Hachioji Kuruma Ningyo Puppet Theater, performing three female-centered stories from classic Japanese literature.

    Kuruma ningyo is a unique style of puppetry where artists perform, while sitting on a wooden box with wheels (or, rokuro kuruma). Unlike the more widely known style of Japanese puppetry known as bunraku, which requires three puppeteers to manipulate a single puppet, the use of the rokuro kuruma allows a single puppeteer to manage one puppet. This innovation allows for more dynamic performances, as the performer can move flexibly with the puppet.

    Master of vocal performance, Takemoto Koshiko, will accompany the puppetry with live gidayu music performing the voices of all the characters. Among narrative styles, gidayu requires such a vocally taxing range of tone and expression that performers sometimes switch halfway through a scene.

    Learn more about the production and performers here.

    Film - Mirai (Dubbed)

    Friday, March 8, 2019 from 7:00PM to 8:40PM

    The Park View Room 230 Park Avenue
    Worcester, MA 01609

    From acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, Wolf Children) and Japan’s Studio Chizu comes Mirai, a daringly original story of love passed down through generations. When four-year-old Kun meets his new baby sister, his world is turned upside down. Named Mirai (meaning “future”), the baby quickly wins the hearts of Kun’s entire family. As his mother returns to work, and his father struggles to run the household, Kun becomes increasingly jealous of baby Mirai... until one day he storms off into the garden, where he encounters strange guests from the past and future – including his sister Mirai, as a teenager. Together, Kun and teenage Mirai go on a journey through time and space, uncovering their family’s incredible story. But why did Mirai come from the future? Oscar nominated for best animated film of 2018! An official selection at Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, and the epic capstone of director Mamoru Hosoda’s career, Mirai is a sumptuous, magical, and emotionally soaring adventure. Dubbed in English.

    Film - Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki

    CO-PRESENTED WITH THE MUSEUM OF SCIENCE

    Wednesday, May 8, 2019 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

    Cahners Theater, Museum of Science
    1 Science Park, Boston, MA 02114

    Film director and animator Hayao Miyazaki suddenly announced his retirement in 2013 at the age of 72. But he couldn’t shake his burning desire to create. After an encounter with young CGI animators, Miyazaki embarked on a new endeavor—his first project ever to utilize CGI. But the artist, who had been adamant about hand-drawn animation, confronted many challenges. The film even faces the danger of being canceled. Can an old master who thinks he’s past his prime shine once again? This program goes behind the scenes over two years as Miyazaki overcomes struggles to create his short film using CGI.

    Join us for a one-night only screening of this incredible, intimate look into the process of a cinematic legend. We will be joined by Susan Napier, Professor in the Japanese program at Tufts University, and  author of the recent book Miyazakiworld: A Life in Art.

    Registration for the general public April 24, 2019 9:00 am.

    For more information and to register for your ticket, please visit the Museum of Science event page.

    This film is co-presented with the Museum of Science.
