The Japanese Arts Foundation in partnership with the International Museum of Surgical Science is excited to announce an upcoming exhibition held at the museum, "Kintsugi: Healing through Japanese Art" by multidisciplinary artist Mami Takahashi, curated by Saira Chambers. This exhibition draws upon the traditional Japanese art of Kintsugi, or gold repair, that has been practiced to repair ceramics throughout Japanese history. As gold is used to repair broken ceramics, highlighting the break rather than erasing it, we reflect on how this translates to the human process of overcoming trauma and loss, particularly in our shared moment of the COVID-19 pandemic.
