Artists have long been fascinated with Japanese art and culture. This exhibition examines a number of projects by RSA Members whose work is directly influenced and inspired by Japan (and Japanese artists), investigating elements of collaboration and practice.


Elspeth Lamb RSA and Paul Furneaux RSA show new works alongside a number of invited Mokahunga (wood block printing) artists from Japan and Scotland, with supporting woodblocks, printing equipment and historic Japanese prints. Arthur Watson RSA and Ian Howard RSA show their new paperwork/book project made with artists in Kyoto, and Jacki Parry RSA, Elizabeth Blackadder RSA and George Donald RSA show works made in response to their travels in Japan.


Mon–Sat, 10am–5pm; Sun, 12–5pm
