About the Exhibition
The Corfu Museum of Asian Art is pleased to organize the exhibition entitled Beauty in Detail: Japanese Art Dolls by Ohno Hatsuko. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with Ohno Hatsuko’s daughter, Mori Mika and the Sainsbury Institute. Curated by Despina Zernioti, Director of the Corfu Museum of Asian Art, the exhibition will display modern Japanese art dolls made by Ohno Hatsuko (1915-1982), celebrating the heritage and mastery of doll making practice in Japan. Her work demonstrates absolute technical precision and artistic sensitivity. Each doll reveals the whimsical human character with warmth and humour. The inauguration of the exhibition will take place on Friday, 7 June 2013, at 19:30. The exhibition will be accompanied by a special lecture by Mori Mika on the meaning and importance of modern doll making in Japan and the role her mother played in the figurative doll making movement. The exhibition is co-organized by the Sainsbury Institute and the Corfu Museum of Asian Art.
