poster for The Food of Taro Okamoto

Ends in 57 days

Food is one of the three most important human needs.

For Taro Okamoto, “food” was something that aroused primal emotions within him, and is one of the clues to the realization of his philosophy that life and art are one. Among the industrial works Okamoto designed, there are many that were designed with “food” in mind, such as tableware including teapots and glasses, and tables with wine coolers. He also created unusual ceramic works, such as platters with dynamic calligraphy and tea sets with faces.

This exhibition will focus on the theme of “food” as it relates to Taro Okamoto, and will feature oil paintings, ceramics, and industrial works, including the original mural “Myth of Fertility” commissioned for a hotel cafeteria in Mexico.
