Marubeni Gallery Opening Exhibition Ⅱ

Pursuing and Passing Down the Beauty – Kimono of the Marubeni Collection

June 7, 2022 - August 1
First semester: June 7, 2022 - July 2, 2022
Second semester: July 4, 2022- August 1, 2022

We are pleased to present the second Opening Exhibition, Pursuing and Passing Down of the Beauty – Kimono of the Marubeni Collection (from June 7 to August 1, 2022), to share a part of our textile collection, one of the three pillars of the Marubeni Collection, with you.
Through this exhibition, we would like to present a new perspective and the results of our research on what kind of eye for aesthetics the pre-war Marubeni Shoten company used when gathering items for a textile collection focused on the Edo period (1603–1868), their intentions behind doing so, and, as dyeing and weaving techniques evolved, how they then applied traditional designs to new ones to create novel design expressions that fit the times.
