Facebook Twitter

Nino Caruso (1928–2017), one of the most prominent figures in 20th-century Italian ceramics, dealt with themes such as mythology and symbolism in his work. At the beginning of his career, Caruso made ornamental vessels related to memories of his hometown. Gradually, through the use of forms such as walls, columns, and gates, which recalled Roman ruins, he began constructing spaces that forged a link between ancient and contemporary. This led Caruso's work to be highly acclaimed throughout the world, including Japan. In this exhibition, the first full-fledged retrospective ever to be held in Japan, we examine Caruso's achievements through approximately 90 of his most significant works and numerous documents, including designs and sketches.
