やつしろ妙見祭(熊本県八代市)

Decoration Never Dies, Anyway, at Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum, Shirokanedai, Minato-ku Tokyo

18th November 2017 - 25th February, 2018 | Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum, Shirokanedai, Minato-ku Tokyo
Decoration has always existed together in hand with mankind. Beginning with rituals mourning the deceased and tattoos associated with sorcery, although on occasion rendered a mere formality, it is that which has continued to persist while repeatedly undergoing changes and harboring new meanings in correspondence to the times. Decoration could indeed be described as being constantly in flux, in an endless cycle of transmigration.

Art and Design, dialogue with materials, at Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art & Design

16th November 2017 - 8th January, 2018 | Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art & Design
As one part of the creative process, artists choose their materials, so as to be able to demonstrate their craft and express what they wish to express.
The selection of materials is an important aspect of the design process, as well.
When materials and processing techniques are combined, new value is created. Having a face-to-face dialogue with materials is an essential part of the process of creating objects.
