Mingei refers to “hand-crafted art of ordinary people.” It celebrates the beauty and quiet humility in everyday, ordinary and utilitarian objects created by often unknown craftsmen. This exhibit consists of over 100 works from throughout Japan: charming items of daily use made of wood, bamboo, paper, straw, shell, lacquers, clay, metal, stone and other materials. Presented in collaboration with the Canadian Society for Asian Arts.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Deux Mille Foundation, the BC Arts Council, Kikori Japanese Antiques & Furnishings, the Japan Foundation, the City of Burnaby, the Government of British Columbia, and OMNI TV.
