The Superlative Artistry of Japan

About

This exhibition presents a collection of works from a range of different genres that each place great emphasis on highly skilled techniques, ingenious concepts and a high level of perfection that takes viewers by surprise.

Introducing elaborate Meiji era (1868 – 1912) kogei (craft) works as a starting point, the exhibition showcases numerous contemporary works of superlative artistry, in addition to a selection of capsule toy figures and food samples, all of which demonstrate a strong commitment to craftsmanship in Japan.

This exhibition is curated by and co-presented with the Japan Foundation with advice from Yuji Yamashita. Celebrating the Japan-UK Season of Culture 2019-20.

To help celebrate the exhibition we have invited Fine Art students from the University of Salford to create work in response to individual pieces in the exhibition. These are on display alongside the exhibition until 19 April.
