Arts of Japan at the Brooklyn Museum

This fall, the Brooklyn Museum unveils a new gallery for its Arts of Japan collection following a multiyear renovation. In this inaugural installation, seventy objects from the Museum’s collection illustrate the sophistication of Japanese art-making technologies and explore the dialogue between tradition and innovation in Japan. Featuring masterworks of Buddhist sculpture, vivid Ukiyo-e prints, exquisite screen paintings, and cutting-edge contemporary ceramics, the gallery highlights two thousand years of artistic achievement. In acknowledgement of the cultural diversity within the region, the installation also includes highlights from the Museum’s important collection of artifacts from the Ainu people of northern Japan, material that is rarely shown in an art museum setting
