Japanese Bamboo Art at Santa Fe Art Week

July 10, 2020–August 15, 2020

Opening Reception: Friday, July 10 from 5-7pm

Bamboo says many things to me. I enjoy my conversations with it. I express beauty through bamboo: the beauty of water flowing, the beauty of flowers, the beauty of moving clouds. I try to bring the beauty of nature into my sculpture.”
–Yamaguchi Ryuun

In connection with the 2nd Annual Santa Fe Art Week, TAI Modern presents Japanese Bamboo Art, a group exhibition featuring a diverse selection of recently acquired works, both historic and contemporary, of Japanese bamboo art. The fifteen artists in this show include members of historic family lineages and contemporary masters such as Yamaguchi Ryuun, Honma Hideaki, and National Living Treasure of Japan, Fujinuma Noboru.

TAI Modern is the world’s leading dealer of contemporary Japanese bamboo art. For over 20 years, the gallery has sought to present compelling exhibitions, build strong collections, further academic research on bamboo art in Japan, and support and encourage artists in this incredibly challenging medium.

The exhibition will be on view July 10-August 15 with an opening reception on Friday, July 10 from 5-7pm. Both the exhibition and opening reception will be held in-person at the gallery. TAI Modern is open Monday through Saturday from 10am-5pm. For further information and image requests, contact the gallery at (505) 984-1387 or amy@taimodern.com.
