Asia Week New York March 2023

Intangible Heritage

The Art of Japan's Living National Treasures
March 1-31, 2023

Opening reception: Thursday, March 16
Monday-Friday 11am-5pm (otherwise by appointment)
Dai Ichi Arts is delighted to present an exhibition of the exceptional works of Japan’s ceramic Living National Treasures, on the occasion of March Asia Week 2023. The exhibition showcases the masters of a range of ceramic techniques from porcelain to stoneware; from celadon to iron glazes. These sublime artworks take the potential of ceramics art to new heights.

"Living National Treasure” is a popular term for the title, Preservers of Important Intangible Cultural Properties (重要無形文化財保持者). The honors began in 1947, when Japan’s Agency for Cultural Affairs created the system in order to preserve cultural or artistic skill sets, a piece of heritage that is “intangible”. We are delighted to present a group show of the exceptional works of Japan’s ceramic Living National Treasures. The exhibition showcases the modern masters in a new light. From porcelain to stoneware; from celadon to iron glazes, the artists shown are pioneers and leaders of their respective craft, whose legacies continue to inspire around the world.
