Autumn Special Exhibition
Raku in Russia
Saturday 30 September – Sunday 24 December 2017

The exhibition held at both the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto and Tokyo from December 2016 through to Spring 2017 entitled The Cosmos in Tea Bowl: Transmitting a Secret Art across Generations of the Raku Family was an expanded version of the 2016 exhibition entitled Raku: The Cosmos in a Tea Bowl, held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in US, the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, and the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow, Russia. The Raku Museum, a joint organizer of these past exhibitions, has taken the initiative to hold one extra exhibition to celebrate the homecoming, curated by the current Raku head, Raku Kichizaemon XV.
The exhibition also focuses on how Russian people, especially children, made heat-to heart communications and exchanges with us through Raku tea bowls.
