About the exhibition
Major Japanese Art Exhibit “Contemporary Kôgei Styles in Japan” coming to Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens
The Agency for Cultural Affairs of Japan, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan, the Consulate General of Japan in Miami, and the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, with special collaboration from the Tokyo National Museum of Modern Art, All Nippon Airways Co., LTD., and Stella M. Holmes, are pleased to announce a special art exhibit coming to the Morikami Museum and Gardens, located at 4000 Morikami Park Road, Delray Beach, Florida, from October 9, 2013 through February 23, 2014.The Morikami Museum has been a center for Japanese arts and culture in South Florida since its opening in 1977.
The special exhibit, “Contemporary Kôgei Styles in Japan,” is a unique collection of 90 Kôgei style contemporary artworks including ceramics, textiles, dolls, works of metal, urushi (lacquer work), wood, bamboo, and glass.
Kôgei is the Japanese original art style that requires the practical use of nature’s artistic beauty by using organic natural materials such as stone, minerals, trees, and plants. Kôgei is thought to be the backbone of Japanese industrial technology. Many people want to know about Kôgei to understand key concepts or ideas of Japanese technology.
The first Kôgei exhibit, “Crafting Beauty,” which focused on traditional arts and crafts was showcased at the world famous British Museum in 2007, followed by another exhibition in 2012 at Palazzo Pitti in Italy called “Historic Art and Crafts,” which focused on modern art.
This new exhibition, “Contemporary Kôgei Styles,” is the first of its kind in the United States. It will be the starting point for a presentation of Kôgei art worldwide. During the exhibition, there will be special events, demonstrations, lectures, and workshops showcasing the many different art styles encompassing Kôgei.
