Contemporary Art Influenced by Korea and Japan: An Unexpected Approach includes select works of ceramics, textiles, baskets and sculptures by artists from Japan, Korea and the United States that each reflect an Asian sensibility. The 23 artists in this exhibit, including Jiro Yonezawa, Naomi Kobayashi, Nancy Moore Bess and Jin-Sook So, have a close relationship to a traditional, culturally associated craft aesthetic, manifested in a contemporary manner. They have chosen conventionally Asian materials and/or techniques (dyes, papers, gold leaf, persimmon tannin, kategami) used in both time-honored and unconventional ways.
