ITOCHU Announces New Exhibition at ITOCHU AOYAMA ART SQUARE
- Exhibition of Edokiriko by 15 Young Artists: Artisans Carrying on the Japanese Craft Tradition -
February 15, 2013
From March 16, 2013 (Saturday), a new exhibition will be held entitled “Exhibition of Edokiriko by 15 Young Artists: Artisans Carrying on Traditional Japanese Craft.” The traditional craft of Edokiriko is one of the traditional skills and techniques nurtured in the climate and long history of Tokyo and passed down through the ages. Typical designs alone number around twenty, but Edokiriko continues to evolve, with more designs being created even today.
This exhibition presents the “new works” of 15 young Edokiriko artisans who continue to create pieces with an appeal that lies somewhere between tradition and innovation mainly in Koto-ku, Tokyo, providing a connection to the next generation. We hope that you will experience for yourself the new skill and beauty of the young artisans who are carrying on traditional Japanese craft, as well as take this opportunity to savor the magnificence of the culture produced by the Japanese.
