Calligraphy: An Examination of the Japanese Spirit
This event has ended.
While calligraphy has been present for many years, it has been shunned in recent times as “illegible” and “difficult” to read. Nevertheless, the charm of calligraphy is not in the act of reading and comprehension. Rather, the joy remains in the intimate feeling of the artist’s hand, heart and emotion. In this exhibition, Kashima Arts will offer calligraphy by great historians, writers, painters, and calligraphers. Categorized by each author’s background, this exhibition will introduce works in an accessible manner, with guidance on how to understand these works.
