Zen and the Art of Cultural Exchange at Nezu Museum

September 1 at 10:00 am - October 8 at 5:00 pm

Adult ¥1,100. Student ¥800.
Zen Art of Cultural Exchange Nezu Museum Tokyo exhibit Buddhist buddhism monks ink paintings

An exhibition that celebrates cultural diversity in the face of growing anti-diversity, “Zen and the Art of Cultural Exchange” focuses on the art of traditional ink paintings and their corresponding poems by Buddhist monks. Sprung out of inspiration from their close Chinese counterparts, Japanese Buddhist monks’ literati circles first began critiquing paintings and later added poetic inscriptions, creating an artform that is as refined and rich in history as you might expect of Japanese artistry. The museum, just 10 minutes away from Omotesando Station, illuminates the history of this ancient combination, a product of cultural exchange, curiosity and artistic pioneering.

 September 1 – October 8. 10am – 5pm. Closed Mondays.
