The kōgei art of Japan has fashioned a world of works brimming with creativity that make the most of Nature through a variety of materials, artistic methods and perceptions. The desire to have as many people as possible experience the world of Kōgei works brought into being the Kōgei Dining program, with “kōgei and culinary experience” as its concept.
It is an opportunity for participants to familiarize themselves with kōgei by interacting with kōgei artists and actually using their works to enjoy a meal. In addition, there are works displayed at the venue with commentary provided by the artists themselves. These works are available for purchase so that even after the event participants will be able to have the pleasure of kōgei in their daily lives.
The second annual Kōgei Dining event is held under the direction of Tokugo Uchida (Director of MOA Museum of Art) and Kazumi Murose (urushi artist, holder of Important Intangible Cultural Property (Maki-e)). Please enjoy the collaboration between crafts and food that can only be experienced at this event.
