poster for Mingu

This event has ended.

In conjunction with the exhibition “Mingei – Another Kind of Art” currently held at Gallery 1 & 2, the “Mingu” exhibition will be held at Gallery 3. Mingu is a term coined by Keizo Shibusawa in the early Showa Period. It refers to objects that for a long time have been part of the everyday lives of the common people. The retailer Muji was conceived through re-examining the origins of products from the perspective of a consumer as well as a user. Can Muji products also be considered as the mingu of today? With both mingu and Muji products on display, this exhibition invites you to consider the question.
