TAI Modern is returning to this year’s Asia Week New York to exhibit important historic and contemporary works of Japanese bamboo art.

Selected Works of Japanese Bamboo Art features works by bamboo’s most notable artists, including members of the historic Hayakawa and Tanabe family lineages and contemporary masters such as Honma Hideaki and Ebana Misaki, one of the medium’s few female artists. This exhibition will provide Asia Week visitors the opportunity to see a diverse selection of exceptional bamboo art.

Alongside these works, TAI Modern will present Abe Motoshi’s first solo exhibition in the United States. This master artist is known for his numerous original plaiting techniques and devotion to the art form. The baskets in this show, dating from 1979 to 2019, represent the full breadth of the artist’s career and creative expression.
