Washi Transformed: New Expressions in Japanese Paper presents over 30 highly textured two-dimensional works, expressive sculptures, and dramatic installations that explore the astonishing potential of this traditional medium. In this exhibition, nine Japanese artists embrace the seemingly infinite possibilities of washi (Japanese paper), underscoring the unique stature this ancient art form has earned in the realm of international contemporary art. For more than one thousand years, Japan has produced some of the world’s finest paper. The breathtaking creativity of these artistic visionaries deepens our understanding of how the past informs the present, and how it can build lasting cultural bridges out of something as seemingly simple and ephemeral as paper.
Now Until April 2, 2023
Washi Transformed features work by nine contemporary Japanese artists: Aoyama Hina, Horiki Eriko, Ibe Kyoko, Ikezaki Yoshio, Ishii Kakuko, Kimura Yuko, Nishimura Yuko, Tanaka Takaaki, and Yoshida Ayomi.
“These nine contemporary Japanese artists are revisiting their nation’s traditional material and elevating it into a medium for expressive and often spectacular works of art.”
- Meher McArthur, Curator
