12/14/2016 - Tools & Utensils - The Beauty Of Objects From The World’s Kitchens And Workshops
Tools and utensils have extended our arms, hands and feet since the beginning of time. Devices used in the workshop and home continue to occupy imaginative designers in an ongoing quest to improve the ease and comfort with which we carry out all manner of tasks. This exhibition presents such artful objects of daily use from cultures across the globe. Most are hand-made, traditional forms; but there is also a selection of machine-made and contemporary objects—all good to handle, effective in use, satisfying to the eye and enjoyable to have around. This is true mingei—art of the world and art of the people.

Admission/Cost: $7 - $10

Location:
Mingei International Museum
1439 El Prado, Balboa Park
San Diego, CA 92101

On view through April 30, 2017.

10/29/2016 - Layers of Brilliance
The tools of Japanese lacquer makers are implements of prolonged use and objects of remarkable beauty. These humble, functional boards, bowls, buckets, shelves and drawers were used to produce lacquered objects and in the process became aesthetic objects in themselves. In their myriad colorful drips and accumulated layers of viscous texture, they record the countless objects created from them. These hybrid articles tell us as much about the relationship of craftsmen to their tools as they do about Japanese lacquer making.

Admission/Cost: $7-$10
