Points of Departure: Treasures of Japan from the Brooklyn Museum

March 7, 2014--June 8, 2014



A dazzling array of objects from the Brooklyn Museum's collection of Japanese art comes together in this unprecedented collaboration between the museum and Japan Society Gallery. More than 2,000 years of art-making history are detailed in 71 paintings, prints, screens, sculptures, and decorative objects. The exhibition showcases the history of the Brooklyn collection while also illuminating its particular strengths in lesser known but revelatory artifacts like delicate bark fiber robes, beaded jewelry and wood carvings made by the Ainu people of northern Japan. Many objects have never been shown before, and many more are rarely exhibited. The works, framed around the four cardinal directions of north, south, east, and west, become points of departure from the myth of a homogeneous Japan.

Admission:
$12; students & seniors $10, Japan Society members & children under 16 free. Admission is free to all on Friday nights, 6-9 pm.

Gallery Hours:
Tues.-Thurs. 11 am-6 pm; Fri. 11 am-9 pm; Sat. & Sun. 11 am-5 pm, closed Mon. & major holidays.



Points of Departure: Treasures of Japan from the Brooklyn Museum is organized by Japan Society in collaboration with the Brooklyn Museum.

Music: "Mayudama no Uta" composed by Katsutoshi Nagasawa, performed by Yoko Reikano Kimura and Yuiko Tomita
