Visiting Artist Workshop with Shozo Michikawa

Location: 

Ceramics Program, 224 Western Avenue, Allston, MA 02134

Presented by: Ceramics Program - Office for the Arts at HarvardShozo 1

Workshop Description

Join us in welcoming Michikawa to Boston for his solo exhibition with Lacoste Gallery. Michikawa has exhibited extensively in Japan and around the world, including London, Berlin and New York, the Philippines, Mongolia, France and China. The artist will provide a half-day demonstration of his art making process beginning at 1:00pm. The day will conclude with a slide lecture of his work at 5:00pm. Michikawa is hugely inspired by the power and energy of nature in its every form. It is his belief that nature would ultimately triumph over science and civilizations. The beauty that nature offers such as seen in the formation of rocks, mountains, deserts and the seas are unparalleled and conversely natural disasters brought on by tsunamis, earthquakes and erupting volcanoes cannot be underestimated.
