Wrapped in Silk and Gold: A Family Legacy of 20th-Century Japanese Kimono

Tea Ceremony
Saturday, June 5, 12 pm and 2:30 pm
Apse

Please join us for the first Japanese tea ceremonies in the new UMMA! Kazu Ogoshi and Mitsuko Yoshida, two revered tea masters who have been practicing the Sekishu-style of tea for 65 years, will travel from Japan to UMMA for this special occasion. (This will be their third appearance at UMMA following their visits in 1997 and 2001.) Yasuo Watanabe will provide interpretation and narration. The Sekishu-style of tea was the orthodox style of the ruling Tokugawa Shogunate (1615–1868) and is also known as the “warrior style” tea. These demonstrations will be followed by a limited sampling of tea and Japanese sweets. Seating is limited; please plan to arrive early.

Curator’s Talk

A. Alfred Taubman Gallery I

UMMA’s Research Curator of Asian Art and curator of the exhibition Natsu Oyobe will guide visitors through Wrapped in Silk and Gold and will discuss the changing status of these garments and the continuity of traditional textile production in the modern era.
