The Art of Japanese Life & Handmade in Japan


Explore the vibrant art and culture of Japan in two recent series from the BBC. In The Art of Japanese Life, Dr. James Fox examines how three core themes—nature, the city, and the home— have manifested in Japanese art and life through the centuries. Handmade in Japan follows contemporary artisans’ intricate production of traditional Japanese crafts: the Samurai sword, the kimono, and Mingei pottery. Offered in conjunction with the special exhibition From the Lands of Asia.
