Imayō is a word often used to mean “fashionable” or “modern-style.” It is the keyword for this exhibition featuring six contemporary artists (Toru Ishii, Ryoko Kimura, Satoshi Someya, Koji Tanada, Haruo Mitsuta, and Taro Yamamoto) with links to traditional techniques, which explores what they have carried on from the arts and crafts of old and transformed into new modes of self-expression. In addition to about forty contemporary works, about ten traditional pieces that inspired them will be displayed as well, in order to provide a greater understanding of their relevance to the artwork, allowing visitors to enjoy pairings of works connecting the past and present.
