Traditions of Japanese Art

August 6, 2022–October 8, 2023
Traditions of Japanese Art  highlights distinct aspects of arts and culture cultivated in Japan through more than fifty objects of wide-ranging media from the museum’s permanent collection. Those works created in the last 1,300 years embody people’s spiritual practices and active engagements with theaters and the natural world. They also present how visual art traditions emerged and evolved through the people’s interactions domestically and globally. Light-sensitive objects, including works on paper and textiles, are rotated throughout the year.
