After the twelve-year collecting journey in Japan, Gordon Brodfuehrer of San Diego brings more than 60 pieces of his Japanese contemporary ceramic collection to Hollywood for public viewing.
On April 17, Japan House Los Angeles opens the ceramic exhibition with the title of “KESHIKI: The Landscape Within – Contemporary Japanese Ceramics from the Brodfuehrer Collection ” at Hollywood & Highland Center, Gallery Level 2. The exhibition will run until June 9.
Curated by Hollis Goodall, Japanese art curator of the Los Angeles County Museum, the artworks are grouped to the six most renowned kiln sites—Bizen, Seto, Tokoname, Shigaraki, Tanba, and Echizen, and accompanied with a series of nature-themed photographs by ceramics dealer and photographer Taijirō Itō.
The public are invited to follow Gordon Brodfuehrer’s sensibilities as a collector, and share his appreciation for the relationship to nature, craftsmanship, and personal creativity that abound in the world of contemporary Japanese ceramics.
