This event has ended.
Takahiko Kaneko, Chairman of Japan Export Crafts Research Association, has built his collection around Japanese craft exports produced from the end of the Tokugawa era (1603-1868) to the late Meiji Period (1868-1912), focusing primarily on yosegi-zaiku (traditional Japanese marquetry), shibayama (lacquer art form), and mugiwara-zaiku (Japanese straw craft). This said, he has a deep interest in ceramics and lacquerware, also collecting resources demonstrative of what we now refer to as “Japanese Modern” sensibilities, including items related to tobacco. This exhibition presenting works from Kaneko’s archive will introduce not only examples of art and crafts, but also address the beauty of objects.
