Arts & Performances

Kyoto is a birth place of traditional arts, crafts and performances of Japan,
and has been maintaining its tradition with the coming of the new age.
Here GTK'd like to introduce the monthly art highlights, museums, creators etc.

Aoki Shigeru Exhibition – Myth, Sea and Love

Aoki Shigeru (1882-1911) is well known as a painter who expressed the world of myths in his works. He created the works despite difficulties during the 28 years of his life, such as poverty, illness, egoism and therefore some distress.
In this exhibition, about 230 works, including those with motifs, came from “Kojiki”, “Nihonshoki” (the oldest historical book written at the beginning of 8th century) and the Old Testament.
(10 invitation tickets are available at c.coquet -communication service-.
