This event has ended.

In today’s Japanese culture, a traditional lifestyle of wearing “KIMONO” and “OBI” (traditional Japanese garments and its belt) and using “WASHI” (hand made Japanese paper) are disappearing, and as a result, their traditional craftsmanships are deteriorating. Yokota has been presenting new forms of art that merges “tradition” and “contemporary” by combining traditional Japanese crafts such as fabrics for “KIMONO” and “OBI” and “WASHI” with synthetic gems and glasses. Skills and techniques of traditional Japanese crafts were reborn in forms of new artwork as “WAGARASU”. Yokota’s “WAGARASU” presented here at this first exhibition in New York City unleashes the sprits of Japan which are represented by the traditional crafts that has been passed down for hundreds and thousands of years.
