If you are interested in this exhibition in the Slovak National Museum, then you still have 19 more days to see it before it closes down. Here comes the official information on the exhibition:
“As a key organization in furthering cultural exchange between Japan and other countries, the Japan Foundation carries out a wide variety of projects together with over 130 countries throughout the world. As part of its exhibition activities, the Japan Foundation has assembled touring exhibitions from its own collection of artworks and actively sends them to foreign countries.
On this occasion, our newly organized circulating exhibition, “Handcrafted Form,” introduces two groups of craft objects. Ceramics, textiles, metalwork, lacquer ware, wood and bamboo crafts, paper, etc., have been nurtured within the daily lives of people in every region of Japan. In addition to those crafts of daily living, we have also assembled creative works of art made by craft artists using skills fostered in the workshop environment. Through this exhibition, we hope you will appreciate the multiplicity and richness of Japanese crafts. ”
