Raluca Iancu, assistant professor of art and visual culture, received a foreign travel grant to participate in three artist residencies in Japan in summer 2022: Itoigawa Geo Park Artist Residency, Studio Kura Artist-in-Residence Program and Mokuhanga Innovation Lab’s Lake Kawaguchi Artist-in-Residence 2022 Mokuhanga Advanced Program. These opportunities will allow for her research into and development of Japanese nontoxic printmaking techniques known as mokuhanga, which she will incorporate into her ongoing scholarly research and curricular pedagogy.

Iancu has been invited to exhibit the new portfolio of prints she will produce during her residencies in Japan at the Fossa Magna Museum in Itoigawa, Niigata, as well as at the Studio Kura Gallery in Itoshima, Fukuoka. This travel was initially planned for summer 2020 but was rescheduled for summer 2022.
