Historically, the objects we now consider as Japanese art held an interdependent relationship with the built environment. This course explores the changing relationship between spaces and things in the Japanese archipelago across different historical moments. Typologies and objects examined include prehistoric Jomon pit-dwellings and vases; Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, and the icons and utensils housed in them; palaces within paintings and paintings within palaces; gardens, pavilions, and tea bowls; and modern institutional buildings such as museums, and the art found in them.
