KIZUNA: Japan | Wales | Design
16th June 8:00 am - 9th September 5:00 pm
For centuries, Japan has had one of the world’s most exciting and refined design cultures. From cars and cameras to household items and animation, Japanese design has changed our world and is now part of our everyday lives. In this major new exhibition you’ll see how Japanese culture and design has captivated the rest of the world. You’ll also discover that Wales has played its own distinctive part in this fascinating story of international exchange. In Japanese, Kizuna means the bonds of friendship, which we celebrate in this exhibition.
Many of the works of art on display have come from major Japanese national museums especially for this exhibition and some have never been seen in the UK before.
