Highlighting the diversity, creativity, and technical virtuosity of 20th and 21st-century ceramic artists working in Japan.

Into the Fold highlights the diversity, creativity, and technical virtuosity of 20th- and 21st-century ceramic artists working in Japan. The show features artists whose work is inspired by traditional themes, as well as those who work in or are influenced by the avant garde. Tensions between form and functionality, traditional and modern, national and international are often evident across works in the exhibition and within individual pieces. Groupings suggest particular elements associated with the medium’s development, including tea vessels, geometric design, and sculptural forms. Some 40 artists, including many of Japan’s greatest living ceramists, are represented by 75 works.
