UPCOMING PROGRAM

Exhibition "MINGEI -Another Kind of Art"

Exhibition "MINGEI -Another Kind of Art"

November 2, 2018 (Fri) - February 24, 2019 (Sun)

In 1925, Soetsu Yanagi (1889 – 1961) first named the handicrafts made by anonymous craftsmen "MINGEI," as he recognized the beauty in these everyday items used by common people. The innocent aesthetics and spirit of MINGEI has a strong impact on not only users, but also all people involved in making things, and provide them with triggers to create new energy. The exhibition will feature over 100 traditional and contemporary MINGEI items primarily from the Japan Folk Crafts Museum’s collection selected by its director Naoto Fukasawa. It will also highlight films, photographs and archives, and will unravel the story of "Another Kind of Art = MINGEI," which will be the basis of design inspiration into the future.
