Japanse art is known for its decorative and playful qualities. From the pottery of the ancient Jomon civilization to the elegant Rimpa School of the Edo era, Japanese art became known around the world for its uniqueJapanese essence. The subsequent Meiji period was marked by the high levels of skill in its craftsmanship, receiving awards at international expositions and impressing many countries with Japanese culture.

Many artists have carried on this spirit of Japanese creativity in modern and contemporary times. This exhibition presents a selection of vibrant pop art sculptures and modern crafts evoking revolutions in tradition that brought out the full vital power of their materials. Whether ceramics, metal craft, lacquer ware, glass, or bamboo, these works share forms realized through the exquisite skill and playful decorative touch of their creators. Their artists range from young creators to establish masters, hailing from Kansai to Kanazawa to the Tokyo area. In the modernist architecture of Hillside Terrace, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, enjoy encounters with these works in a space combining elements of both old and new.
