This event has ended.

Kata-zome (stencil dyeing) began attracting attention in modern Japan for its lean beauty. A pioneer of modern kata-zome, Serizawa Keisuke (1895–1984) was designated a Living National Treasure in 1956 for “Kata-e-zome” (stencil picture dyeing). Presenting his designs and original pictures in addition to kimonos and folding screens, this exhibition will explore his unique ideas and the dynamism of the artist’s way of formative thinking that gave birth to his patterns.
