The Superlative Artistry of Japan

This exhibition presents a collection of works from a range of different genres that each place great emphasis on highly skilled techniques, ingenious concepts and a high level of perfection that takes viewers by surprise.

Introducing elaborate Meiji era (1868 – 1912) kogei (craft) works as a starting point, the exhibition showcases numerous contemporary works of superlative artistry, in addition to a selection of capsule toy figures and food samples, all of which demonstrate a strong commitment to craftsmanship in Japan.

This exhibition is curated by and co-presented with the Japan Foundation with advice from Yuji Yamashita. Celebrating the Japan-UK Season of Culture 2019-20.

To help celebrate the exhibition  Fine Art students from the University of Salford were invited to create work in response to individual pieces in the exhibition.
