Japanese Design: The Art of the Everyday Object

By danielle


Japanese culture has been a powerful factor in the arts in New York ever since the arrival of the first Japanese ambassadors to New York in 1860.  From the influence of Japanese prints on Impressionist painters and designers like Louis Comfort Tiffany to the impact of manga and anime on contemporary designers and artists, New Yorkers have been fascinated with Japanese design.

Tomorrow, design expert and author Phil Patton will moderate a conversation featuring Chay Costello, Product Manager, MoMA Retail, and Adam Glickman, formerly of TOKION magazine, about the progression, prevalence, and production of the familiar, everyday objects that were born from New York and Japan’s enduring legacy of cultural design exchange.  Presented in conjunction with Samurai in New York: The First Japanese Delegation, 1860.
