JAPON-JAPONISMES 1867-2018 Musée des Arts Décoratifs November 15 – March 3, 2019

Dear Shaded Viewers,

MAD pays homage to Japan and its art framed in the exhibition Japon-Japonismes 1867 -2018. The exhibition sheds light on the relationship between the two countries focusing on the ancient Japanese art and the most important in France. Nearly 1500 works of art across many mediums will be on view: objects of art and design, fashion, graphics, photography with a set design by Sou Fujimoto, a new generation minimalist architect who will design the three levels and 2,200 m2 which will articulate around five themes. It opens with the role of Japan and how it transmits its culture universally starting in 1867. In part through the collectors Henri Cernuschi, Émile Guimet, Hugues Krafft, Siegfried Bing, Florine Langweil or Hayashi Tadamasa.

MAD has supported Japanese art since its founding in 1864. At the heart of this exhibition is the diversity and remarkable quality of the work as well as showing the strong exchange between the two countries that has and continues to exist.
