From the deep end of the "make art out of anything" department comes an exhibition celebrating the centuries-old traditional art of fish-rubbing. Gyotaku is a legacy artisanal method of transfer-printing in which unique editions are made from fish, sumi ink and washi paper. But as with everything else, new generations of artists are adding their own spin to its history. At the Japan Foundation through July 13, and produced in collaboration with LACMA, Impressions of the Seas: Gyotaku Fish Prints by Dwight Hwang presents a new series by this L.A.-based artist whose seven years in Japan inspired him to master and then update his fish-rubbing technique with the addition of paint, ink and even digital aspects.
