poster for Tom Sachs “Tea Ceremony”

Ends in 3 days

First produced in 2016 for an exhibition at the Noguchi Museum in New York, ’Tom Sachs Tea Ceremony’ has since been exhibited at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts as part of ’Space Program: Europa” (2016-17, and at the Nasher Sculpture Center (2017-18). The exhibition will feature a tea house in a garden accessorized with variations on lanterns, gates, a wash basin, a plywood airplane lavatory, a koi pond, an ultra HD video wall with the sublime hyper-presence of Mt. Fuji, a bronze bonsai made of over 3,600 individually welded parts, and other objects of use and contemplation. Sachs has also produced a complete alternative material culture of Tea—from bowls and ladles, scroll paintings and vases, to a motorized tea whisk, a shot clock, and an electronic brazier. A video work entitled “Tea Ceremony” will be projected on a geodesic dome theater created especially for the Tokyo exhibition. Sachs himself will twice perform a live tea ceremony on the opening day of the exhibition.
