The Dolls of Japan: Shape of Prayer, Embodiments of Love
Sep 26, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location: Campus Art Gallery, Miami Dade College – North Campus Miami, FL
Exhibit Dates: April 25 – June 1, 2018
This exhibition, on loan from The Japan Foundation 国際交流基金, showcases Japan’s representative dolls, including Hina ningyo (Girls’ Festival dolls) and Gogatsu ningyo (Boys’ Day dolls), which have their origins in ancient customs; dolls connected to traditional performing arts like noh, bunraku; regional dolls from throughout Japan; and ‘creative dolls’ produced by contemporary craftspeople.
In Japan, dolls have been a part of everyday life since ancient times. Japanese dolls reflect the customs of Japan and the aspirations of its people, possess distinctive regional attributes, and over the centuries have developed in many diverse forms. Dolls also provide a showcase for traditional Japanese craft products, such as textiles.
We hope that the dolls in this exhibition will help visitors to appreciate these various aspects of Japanese culture.
