Ends in 16 days

*Dates Changed. Tickets with designated date and time are necessary to access the exhibition.

This exhibition unites works by contemporary artists working at the forefront of art, photography, design, and architecture with masterpieces of classic Japanese art. Along with pieces by legendary Edo Period figures such as Enku, Kenzan, Shohaku, Sengai, Hokusai, and outstanding examples of flower-and-bird paintings, swords and Buddhist statuary, the exhibition presents works by eight important contemporary Japanese artists: Kawauchi Rinko, Konoike Tomoko, Shiriagari Kotobuki, Suga Kishio, Tanada Koji, Tane Tsuyoshi, Minagawa Akira, and Yokoo Tadanori. This integrated approach promises to shed light on artistic and spiritual similarities and affinities concealed within the creative work of the ancient and modern era.
