Exhibition

Tradition on Fire: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics from the Paul and Kathy Bissinger Collection

Aug 19, 2014 – Apr 5, 2015

Highlighting 22 works by 20 artists, this exhibition celebrates selected Japanese contemporary works from the Paul and Kathy Bissinger Collection of San Francisco. The works demonstrate how contemporary Japanese potters appreciate and continue the long tradition of ceramics, but at the same time depart from convention in search of the new. Organized by the Asian Art Museum.
