Japan: past to present


A talk by Dr Andrew Renton


This talk by Andrew Renton, joint lead curator of the exhibition ‘KIZUNA: Japan | Wales | Design’ coincides with its opening to the general public on the 16th June.  We are most grateful to Andrew for agreeing to give this talk to the Friends on this special day.

Andrew has written the following to describe the exhibition.
“The exhibition will show Japanese objects from the 1600s to the present day, and look into the influence of historic Japanese art and design on the art and design culture of contemporary Japan. It will do this from the perspective of Wales, showing how Wales has played a part in the long-standing interaction between Europe and Japan, from the early 17th century to the present day. It will include a range of types of object, from ceramics and prints to textiles and furniture to contemporary design. Some of these have never been outside Japan before, while others will come from the Museum’s own collections and from collections across Wales.”

We hope that you will join us to hear about this inspirational, landmark exhibition for the museum.

The admission charge, to include post-lecture coffee and biscuits in the Oriel Suite, is 8 for tickets ordered by Friends in advance, and 10 at the door.
