This event has ended.

We are moved by beauty and perfection, but sometimes the strange and imperfect can capture our hearts, too. In Japanese this is called “heta-uma” (wonderfully bad), and it can be seen in artwork such as the paintings and drawings of shoguns and other elites that leave viewers scratching their heads, or in the innocence and simplicity of children’s art. This exhibition showcases warped beauty in Japanese art history, from Medieval Zen painting to “heta-uma” contemporary art.
