Sadako Ohki, the Japan Foundation Associate Curator of Japanese Art, and Mimi Yiengpruksawan, Professor of History of Art at Yale University, investigate the intersections of the visual and material culture of Japanese screens, which demarcate private spaces, whether for poets and tea drinkers, high-ranking samurai lords, or modern viewers seeking to catch a glimpse of old Japan.
