There will be a Study Day on lacquer with specialist lectures, workshop, and gallery talks during the exhibition.
The exhibition aims to promote a better understanding of the craft tradition in Japan, the material lacquer, and the technique of Makie. Koyanagi uses the traditional technique of Makie, but creates objects in innovative modern design that appeal to the contemporary taste. The artist is keen to show how these objects are used in everyday life of Japanese in contemporary society.
Open: Tuesday – Saturday: 10:30 – 17:00
Late night Thursday until 20:00
Closed: Sundays, Mondays and Bank Holidays
The Japan Society, in association with Ritsumeikan (UK) and SOAS (University of London), is pleased to once again invite Sixth Form students to attend the Sixth Form Japan Day. So please save the date! FREE – this event is free of charge to schools and 6th Form students.
The Sixth Form Japan Day is designed to give insights into aspects of Japan, traditional and modern, through lectures and practical workshops. It is aimed at students who are studying Japanese, but will also be of interest to Sixth Form students who have not had the opportunity to study formally at school, but who are considering taking Japanese studies (or Japanese alongside other subjects) at university.
On the day, we will be once again holding a University Exhibition during the lunch break (12:50-13:50). This is a unique opportunity for Sixth Form students to ask questions and hear first-hand from universities offering Japanese Studies courses.
Further details and the booking form for the 2019 Sixth Form Japan Day will be available soon.
