【On Calligraphy by Artists: Another Face】

In this exhibition, approx. 40 never-before exhibited works by Abe Anjin will be on exhibit.

The highly renowned Bizen-style potter, Abe Anjin's works are characterized by the artist's deep fascination for antiquity, forms exclusive to Bizen ware, and a distinct and charming color arrangement. Abe Anjin's works have received great acclaim worldwide and have been acquired by the likes of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY and the National Palace Museum, Taipei.

【On Calligraphy by Artists: Another Face】

This exhibition will present a selection of calligraphy by various artists, such as Suda Kokuta, Munakata Shiko, Teshigahara Sofu and more. Transcending the 'written' form, these works bear a unique style and character that allows viewers to imagine a sense of their time, as well as the love and passion these artists had for the art. Exhibiting a range of different styles, the exhibition seeks to shine light onto the fascinating world of calligraphy that reveal "another face" to these artists and their works.
