A complimentary exhibit featuring contemporary Japanese ceramics from the Brodfuehrer collection from April 17 to June 9.
The natural imperfections that emerge on ceramic vessels during the firing process – pools of glaze, scorch markings, cracks and indentations referred to as the keshiki (“landscapes”) of a piece – have been celebrated by Japanese artists and collectors as adding new beauty, depth, and value to the work since the sixteenth century. Local Southern Californian collector Gordon Brodfuehrer has built an exceptional collection that includes styles and techniques from kilns across Japan. The exhibit curated by Hollis Goodall from Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents over sixty contemporary ceramic pieces from the Brodfuehrer collection, inviting visitors to join this pioneering collector in his journey around Japan.
