This event has ended.

This exhibition sheds light on the relationship between Shiko Munakata, a woodblock maker and important 20th century Japanese artist, and Soetsu Yanagi, leader of the Mingei folk-craft movement. Munakata respected and admired Soetsu Yanagi as a teacher throughout his life while Yanagi recognized and cherished Munakata’s talent. Focusing on these two major players in the Mingei movement in a way only possible at the Japan Folk-Craft Museum, this show introduces letters between Munakata and Yanagi and spotlights the beauty of Munakata’s work.
