Shibunkaku participates in Asia Week New York 2024
Postwar Japanese Calligraphy and Painting
Presented by Shibunkaku at Joan B Mirviss Ltd.
Shibunkaku is delighted to present the abstract paintings and works on paper of Japanese artists from the postwar period, including works by two pioneering female artists who were active in New York City during the 1950s and 60s, Miyawaki Aiko (1929-2014) and Shinoda Tōkō (1913-2021).
We hope to express the variety of artistic practices in Japanese art during the postwar era, the international dialogue with artistic movements such as Art Informel and Abstract Expressionism, and challenge conventional narratives and constraints endured within a Western context. Also showcased are works by Morita Shiryū (1912-1998) and Inoue Yūichi (1916-1985), founding members of the avant-garde calligraphy collective, Bokujinkai. As a special highlight, we will display a treasured classical work by Kano Hōgai (1827-1888), one of the most influential painters of the early Meiji period, and the last of the Kano School painters.
This presentation of works in New York alongside the ceramic works of Eternal Partnership: Japanese Ceramics in Blue/White offers a unique perspective on the ever-evolving dynamism of Japan’s artistic tradition.
