Nakamura Takuo (b. 1945) Vessel that is not a Vessel, 2016

Japan Now: Form + Function

Fri Jan 12 to Apr 22, All Day

Lobby Display

The first of three remarkable displays of contemporary Japanese ceramics that will be on view in the Gardiner lobby in 2018. Curated by Joan B. Mirviss, an authority on Japanese ceramics and a New York City gallery owner for 40 years, these displays will showcase the stunning work of leading and emerging Japanese ceramic artists.

Japan Now: Form + Function features vessels created for floral display or referring, sometimes loosely, to that function.
