Exhibition Introduction
The Edo Tokyo Kirari Project aims to enhance the skills and improve products rooted in the traditions of Edo Tokyo from a new perspective and reach out to the world. Noritaka Tatehana, a contemporary artist who plays an active role in the field of contemporary art, both domestically and internationally, has been invited as the exhibition director. “Edo Tokyo Rethink -The Future of Traditional Industry Seen Through Art at the Kyu-Iwasaki-tei Gardens-” is now on view on this special website. The exhibition features traditional industry businesses in Tokyo as the collaborator of Noritaka Tatehana. The question, “What should be expressed by reviewing the ancient traditional culture of Japan?”, is the main theme of “Rethink” which is Noritaka Tatehana’s creation process. To launch out, “Rethink” proposes a new form of value and attractiveness of traditional industries. This exhibition is a continuation of the previous year’s, featuring newly created artworks and valuable historical collections owned by traditional industry businesses at the Kyu-Iwasaki-tei Gardens, designated an important cultural property.
