Exhibition Themes

In Japan, an awareness of change—in season or occasion—is fundamental to the appreciation of art.
Temporary displays of art might last for a few moments or a few months before being replaced by another display to celebrate changing circumstances. 

Each arrangement of art creates a unique viewing experience, altering one’s physical surroundings and relationship to the natural world and other people—a transient experience properly savored “in the moment.” 

When the “moment” is over, the artwork is stored away. Due to the frequency of display changes, special handling and storage practices are followed to minimize damage to objects. Traditionally, Japanese sculpture and paintings not on view are rolled, folded or put in boxes and placed in storehouses called kura

This exhibition will allow you to explore aspects of art selection and viewing in traditional Japanese settings.
