A Chronicle of Modern Crafts: Works from the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto Collection
This event has ended.
Crafts are one of the pillars of our activities at the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto, a facility that opened in 1963. This emphasis has helped form one of Japan’s premier collections of crafts. Moreover, we have on occasion presented exhibitions such as the International Exhibition of Contemporary Ceramic Art, Contemporary Ceramic Art: Canada, U.S.A., Mexico and Japan, Fiber Works: Europe and Japan, and Contemporary Glass: Europe and Japan, which introduced and compared crafts from other countries with Japanese works, and exerted a strong influence on the Japanese art and crafts scene. This exhibition takes a look back at some of these events from the past based on works from the museum collection while retracing the development of modern crafts.
