    Bamboo as a medium appears delicate and profound as witnessed in the dynamic installations of fourth generation bamboo artist Tanabe Chikuunsai IV. His bamboo structures have captivated audiences all over the globe.  As the featured artist in the Asian Art Museum’s Lee Gallery this spring, Chikuunsai weaves past and present into a site-specific installation, recycling materials from former works.  Please join us in learning more about Chikuunsai’s work in this artist talk where he will discuss how he uses the traditional techniques of his forebears to create large scale bamboo sculptures, drawing connections between memory and rebirth.
