Exhibition: Bamboo
May 27 – September 9, 2018

The Bamboo exhibition explores the evolution of Japanese bamboo basketry from a purely functional art form into complicated, distinctly Japanese sculptural forms of variable scale.

A major selection of historical and contemporary works from the Los Angeles-based Cotsen Collection are central to the exhibition, as well as a large-scale, interactive bamboo installation by Japan-based artist Akio Hizume.

This exhibition is supported by Japan Foundation, Los Angeles, with additional support from the Pasadena Art Alliance and the Cotsen Foundation for Academic Research.
