DECORATIVE ARTS OF THE MEIJI AND HEIJI PERIODS EXHIBITION
Museum of Modern Greek Culture
Athens, Greece 2019
The year 2019 marked 120 years of Greek-Japanese relations. One of the central celebrations of this important anniversary for the two states was the exhibition “Decorative Arts in Meiji and Heiji: Crafting Beauty and Technique across 150 Years”, presented at the Museum of Modern Greek Culture in collaboration with the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo.
The exhibition brought the Greek public closer to Japanese culture, presenting a comprehensive overview of the evolution of the decorative arts in Japan from 1868 to the present time.
MUEVO undertook the construction of various display cases intended to house ceramics, lacquer boxes, metal objects, fabrics, and other materials that were brought together for the purposes of this event. Our aim on this occasion was to bring out the details of the exposition’s artifacts, while matching the appearance of our display cases with the aesthetics of the Japanese art objects.
