The Japanese Culture Center, Japan America Society of Chicago (JASC), and Japanese Arts Foundation announce this evening exploring self-portraits in 20th century Japanese Prints. Self-portraits have long been admired for their revelatory nature, yielding insight into both the appearance and the essence of the sitter. On a more profound and universal level, they also expose deeper truths about the human condition.
