Classical Dignity, Contemporary Beauty
Asia Week New York September 2021
For his first solo exhibition outside of Japan, Itō Hidehito has created uniquely personal vessels and sculptural forms displaying his exceptional skill in craquelure celadon. Through steadfast experimentation, Itō pushed himself to create his largest ever works 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 that is at the heart of both its longstanding clay tradition and its most innovative interpretations.
Classical Dignity, Contemporary Beauty: Itō Hidehito opens on September 17 and runs through October 15, 2021. It will feature sixteen new masterworks that showcase Itō's contemporary approach to celadon ware.
