Can’t Read It, but I Like It!
Jul 16 at 10:00 am - Aug 21 at 5:00 pm¥1,300
We tend to avoid exhibitions of calligraphy. After all, who wants to look at writing from ages ago, even if it is famous, if you can’t read it? It’s boring not to understand what’s written there. Of course, being able to decipher the text is essential for understanding what it says. But let’s forget about needing a neatly printed text to read what’s written. It’s time to experience the fascination of writing with the brush. The focus of this exhibition, which consists mainly of famous works of calligraphy from the Nezu Museum collection, is presenting highlights of calligraphy that our predecessors treasured and handed down to us. We hope that you, too, will feel “I can’t read it, but I like it” and take that experience as a stimulus for moving towards a deeper appreciation of the art of calligraphy.
