Modern Twist: Contemporary Japanese Bamboo Art

March 19, 2016 to June 12, 2016

Modern Twist explores the evocative, sensual and sculptural power of contemporary bamboo art. Over the past century, the creativity and talent of bamboo basket makers has elevated their status from artisan to artist. These artists have redefined aesthetic conventions as their creations have evolved from functional vessels to increasingly sculptural objects. It brings 38 exceptional works by 17 Japanese artists, displaying many of these technically innovative and imaginatively crafted works for the first time.
