Exhibition MORIGUCHI Kunihiko: Yuzen / Design – Crossroads of Creativity 2020.
10.13 tue. - 12.06 sun.

Moriguchi Kunihiko has been designated a Living National Treasure for his mastery of the Yuzen (resist dyeing) technique. By boldly combining graphic design ideas and geometric patterns informed by his studies in Paris, Moriguchi has pioneered new creative possibilities that go beyond the traditional craft of Yuzen. From kimono production to graphic design work exemplified by his shopping bags for the Mitsukoshi department store, Moriguchi takes artisanal skills and refined sensibilities accumulated over the course of Yuzen design history as a point of departure for a practice that reintroduces this venerable tradition to contemporary society. This exhibition introduces Moriguchi Kunihiko’s creative activities, which emerge from various intersections between Yuzen and design, tradition and modernity, and East and West.
