Traditions of Japanese Art

© Nelson Atkins Museum of Art

Time and Location

August 6, 2022- October 8, 2023
Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art Gallery 205 (Kansas City, MO)


Traditions of Japanese Art highlights distinct aspects of arts and culture cultivated in Japan through more than fifty objects of wide-ranging media from the museum’s permanent collection. Those works created in the last 1,300 years embody people’s spiritual practices and active engagements with theaters and the natural world. They also present how visual art traditions emerged and evolved through the people’s interactions domestically and globally. Light-sensitive objects, including works on pa-per and textiles, are rotated throughout the year.
