Current Traditions: Contemporary Japanese Sculpture

 

September 5 – October 14
University Gallery

Each of the artists exhibiting small sculpture and drawings is or has been affiliated with the Tokyo University of the Arts, the only National Arts University in Japan. Each has a rigorous mastery of their material and an awareness both of the long tradition of Japanese wood sculpture and the current movements in international fine art and aesthetic. Together, they represent a cross section of current creative work produced in Japan. Curated by Assistant Professor Bill Wolff, the exhibition includes drawings and sculptures by contemporary Japanese artists. Visiting Artists IURA Chise and KUBO Natsuko are in residence October 2-13.
