[MOA Museum] HOMO FABER, 12 Stone Garden Naoto Fukasawa and 12 Living National Treasures

This spring, the “Homo Faber Exhibition” (April 10-May 1) was held in Venice, Italy, to introduce excellent craftsmanship from around the world. Twelve important intangible cultural property holders (Living National Treasures) and their works were introduced. This exhibition, which brought together the works of Japan’s Living National Treasures, fascinated the Italian people with traditional crafts as a new attraction of Japan. In response to strong requests from many exhibitors and related parties, this exhibition will be curated by Naoto Fukasawa, a product designer, and Tokugo Uchida, director of the museum, as a returning exhibition from Venice. In an exhibition space designed by Naoto Fukasawa, the works of 12 Living National Treasures will be introduced along with images by photographer Rinko Kawauchi.
