Kōgei: Art Craft Japan
Concludes Monday, April 4
Craftsmanship is a major hallmark of Japanese design. This installation celebrates Japanese kōgei—one-of-a-kind, handcrafted objects made with traditional techniques and natural materials. The works on display highlight the specialized skills of contemporary kōgei artists working in clay, glass, and fabric.

Fault Lines: Contemporary Abstraction by Artists from South Asia
Concludes April 10
The power of a line: for the four female artists featured in this exhibition, it’s both an infinitely malleable form and a poetic metaphor for the borders and divisions that make up our world. Discover abstract paintings, sculptures, and works on paper that uniquely embrace and rethink the minimalist approach to explore questions about memory, home, and belonging.
