1. A new Japanese aesthetic that transcends the boundaries of contemporary art, design, and craft
Increased use of video and digital technology in creative fields is conversely leading to renewed interest in art shaped solely by hand. In this exhibition, visitors will discover the splendor of handicrafts created by contemporary Japanese artists.
2. Twelve creators who explore the beauty of contemporary craft
Exhibited here are works by twelve popular artists, all born in the 1970s and onwards: Daigo Adachi, Terumasa Ikeda, Takuro Kuwata, Naoki Sakai, Michiko Sago, Kengo Takahashi, Noritaka Tatehana, Akio Niisato, Chitaka Hashimoto, Riusuke Fukahori, Masayasu Mitsuke, and Akane Yamamoto.
3. About a third of the works are new, on display for the first time!
Almost all the creators have produced new pieces just for this exhibition. Visitors will be treated to these artists’ latest works, showcasing the skills they’ve polished through years of experience.
