CLASSICAL DIGNITY, CONTEMPORARY BEAUTY: HORI ICHIRŌ
SEPTEMBER 17 - OCTOBER 15, 2021
ASIA WEEK NEW YORK
For his first solo exhibition outside of Japan, Hori Ichirō has created enticing and highly original vessels exclusively for his New York debut at Joan B Mirviss LTD. Opening during Asia Week New York this September, Classical Dignity, Contemporary Beauty is the culmination of the gallery’s two-year long series showcasing the extraordinary range of ceramics produced in the historic Mino region of Japan. Mino is at the heart of both Japan’s longstanding clay tradition and that tradition’s most innovative interpretations. Hori exemplifies the best in Japanese ceramic artistry, as he is rooted in classical styles while bringing those traditions forward with a strikingly contemporary flair.
