Toronto will have to wait until March 2018 to see it, but in the mean time here's an article to give some background on one of Japan's most successful living artists, including her connection to Georgia O'Keeffe.

A reminder that if you're going to attend our Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon next week and will require child care, that today is your last chance to reserve it.

And if you haven't RSVP'd yet, it's not too late!
