Opening Reception: Friday, June 29, 5-7 pm
TAI Modern is pleased to present Three Generations of Wada Waichisai, an exhibition of 16 works from this influential, but little studied bamboo art lineage. Wada Waichisai I (1851-1901) was a pioneering artist and teacher in the Kansai region. However, his son and grandson, Wada Waichisai II (1877-1933) and Wada Waichisai III (1899-1975), moved away from Japan’s artistic centers and refrained from public exhibitions while they carried on the family legacy. This exhibition explores the art of the Wada lineage in relation to the Osaka-based Bunjin (literati) movement.
