"Paper Materials" Exhibition

Okura Shukokan Museum of Fine Arts

This event has ended.

Ever since the birth of papermaking in China about 2000 years ago, paper has served to record human activities through text and pictures and also utilized to create objects, supporting the development of human culture. Expansion of Buddhism, which is practiced based on the Buddhist scriptures, was made possible by the development of printing. Emaki (scroll painting), soushi (an early form of graphic novel), and karuta (card game), all of these familiar paper items were loved by Japanese people back in the old days. In this exhibition, various types of artworks created using the most familiar and simple material, paper, will be on display. Works include the museum collections as well as newly donated works by a special paper production company, Pam.
