poster for Shiko Munakata and Mingei in Tohoku

Ends in 35 days

10 years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake Disaster, which has totally changed people’s ordinary lives in unexpected ways. This exhibition will present a folding screen “In Praise of the Tohoku District” (1937) by Shiko Munakata, who was born in Aomori and dedicated this work with prayers for Tohoku. In addition, ceramics, textiles, wood and lacquer works, and many other works made of natural materials collected in Tohoku by Soetsu Yanagi and his fellows are on display. We would like to introduce that Tohoku is a treasure box of mingei, and the place for abundant cultural creativity.
