"The Cosmos Within: Contemporary Japanese Metalwork and Ceramics"

This group exhibition brings together 26 contemporary artists specializing in crafting kōgei, or objects that express the small, intimate wonders of everyday life rather than universal truths. The show promises to deliver some of the very best examples of this fascinating niche: 10 of the artists featured here have been named “Living National Treasures” by the Japanese government for their work in safeguarding and celebrating the nation’s millennia-old cultural traditions.
