Mingei: Old Japan on Hand

Más Información

Yume Japanese Gardens of Tucson presents this permanent exposition, which shows how the Japanease folk art preservation movement is a distinctly Japanese appreciation of the traditional. Mingei challenges narrow definitions of art by focusing on utilitarian items made by their everyday users, rather than on refined works from professional artists. This collection includes objects spanning more than 150 years. It celebrates nameless creators who used materials as common as themselves – stone, ceramics, textiles, paper, bamboo, lacquer, and wood – to make functional things that are humble, but nonetheless of value, because they preserve the sense of the personal in an era of mass production.
