> DESCRIPTION

Special event complementing the exhibition of contemporary Japanese artist Kotaro Fukui: Silent Flowers and Ostriches

Music performance by renowned musician Kaoru Watanabe, traditional tea Ceremony by tea master Tomoko Murakami and talk by Matthew McKelway, Atsumi Assoc. Professor of Japanese Art History at Columbia University

Kaoru Watanabe, a practitioner of various Japanese bamboo flutes, the taiko drum, as well as Western flute, plays music that can be described as an ever shifting blend of the folk and classical traditions of Japanese contemporary improvisational and experimental music. The ritual of tea ceremony, here prepared and presented by Tomoko Murakami from Tokyo, is appreciated as one of the most beautiful elements of the traditional arts in Japan. Professor Matthew McKelway from Columbia University, who specializes in the history of Japanese art from the 16th to 18th century, will give a talk on styles and techniques in Japanese painting.
