The Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo
The entrance to the Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, is marred by, what I thought was, a very ugly sculpture. The exhibition that was on was "About the Tea Ceremony" which was mainly contemporary pieces but also showed some old master's work. It was all very lovely. Earlier this year "Ceramics Monthly" had an article and some photographs of this exhibition. The bamboo sculptures were near-by and reminded me of the local "Vine Sculptures" competition when the grapes are pruned.
