Japon – Japonismes. Objets inspirés, 1867-2018
The exhibition will display works from the Japanese art collection of Musée des Arts décoratif, crafts from Japan, and works by contemporary artists, artisans and designers to provide a cross-sectional introduction to crafts, design and fashion from the second half of the 19th century to the present.
Focusing on the mutual influence of Japan and France during the 150 years since the middle of the nineteenth century, this exhibition consists mainly of select works from the Musée des Arts Décoratifs’ collection of 10,000 pieces of Japanese art, as well as works on loan from Japan and works produced in Europe that were influenced by Japan.
Spread over 2,000 m², this large-scale exhibition covers a wide variety of artistic works spanning various genres, from objects of art and design to product design, graphic arts, fashion, and photographs. It is organized around five themes: actors of discovery, nature, time, movement, and innovation.
