What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
Most studies of Japanese crafts during the Momoyama and Tokugawa periods approach the subject from the perspective of individual masters and media, or within the realms of collecting, curation, and display. In this lecture, Christine Guth will take a different approach, drawing critical attention to the dynamic, multidirectional network of forces—both material and immaterial-- that undergird Japan’s extraordinarily rich, diverse and aesthetically sophisticated artifactual culture.
The event is free but registration is essential. Book here
This will include the particular materials and tools and the people who wield them, but also the institutions, modes of thought, behaviors and the reciprocal relationships among them. In drawing attention to “craft culture” this lecture, based on Christine's latest publication Craft Culture in Early Modern Japan: Materials, Makers, Mastery, will emphasize shared assumptions fundamental to ways and values of making that transcend the specifics of each practice.
