Japanese Design for the Senses: Beauty, Form, and Function
Japanese Design for the Senses comprises three distinct exhibitions of Japanese craft and design; each component featuring objects as impressive in their design as they are in their craftsmanship and functionality.
Touch of Gold: Lacquerware Boxes and the Paintings of Elaine Ehrenkranz
For over forty years, abstract expressionist painter Elaine Ehrenkranz formed a comprehensive collection of magnificent Japanese lacquerware boxes, dating from the 15th- to the mid-19th centuries. Touch of Gold features selections from her gift to the Morikami.
Ma: Defining Space: Studio Furniture of Yoko Zeltserman-Miyaji
Zeltserman-Miyaji’s timeless, elegant shelving and storage systems accentuate the simple yet refined beauty of form and function that is the essence of Japanese design and furniture aesthetics.
Katachi: The Essence of Aesthetic Form and Function in Japanese Furniture
Katachi embodies the hallmark of Japanese aesthetics: a harmonious balance of beautiful form, fine workmanship, and functionality. This exhibition draws upon the Morikami’s collection of 19th and 20th-century furnishings. Included are several pieces made by George Nakashima (1905 – 1990), a leading innovator of 20th-century furniture design and one of the founders of the American Craft Movement.
