The Transylvanian Museum of Ethnography, public cultural institution that works under the authority of the Cluj County Council invites the public to the exhibition “Japanese Traditions”, first of a series of events meant to bring Japanese culture closer to the general public.
The exhibition responds to the increasing interest in this exotic and long run culture wishing to offer visitors the opportunity to interact directly with this fascinating world.
We will travel together in the Land of the Sun Rise thinking about the cherry blossoms, admiring a wide variety of kimonos and clothing accessories, ceramic objects, wood objects, fancy, ritual objects, dolls, swords, layouts and many other surprises.
The exhibition is made for all age groups wishing to aware the interest of as many visitors as possible, which is why the event organizers propose workshops of ikebana, origami and Japanese paintings throughout the exhibition. The workshops will be supported by “Notorious learning” by Patricia Kudo and Cristina Mihaela Pop, who will generously display in the exhibition their personal collections.
The exhibition is organised by the Transylvanian Museum of Ethnography with the support of Embassy of Japan in Bucharest and the Japanese Cultural Centre of “Babes-Bolyai” University (Business Department) and also the Japanese community in Cluj-Napoca.
The event opening will take place on Saturday, 17th of February, 2018, beginning at 1 p.m. at the main building of the museum (Reduta Palace – Memorandumului Street no. 21).
