Tobacco & Salt Museum

poster for Business and Art - The trajectory of Tobacco & Salt Museum Collection

Ends in 17 days

The history of the Tobacco & Salt Museum’s document archive begins in the early-Showa period when tobacco culture shifted from the metal tipped “kiseru” pipe to paper cigarettes. At the same, if we look at society at the time, sudden changes borne of industrialization, the Great Kanto Earthquake, war, economic turbulence, and other factors led to an upheaval within the art world. This exhibition presents this period of great change in art and craft, specifically through the lens of the history of tobacco.
