Zuan Influence


Bold, abstracted patterns, shocking color combinations, and graceful lines: A new show opening at LACMA this Saturday explores changes in Japanese textile design during the 20th century. The jumping off point is a specific type of printed design book, Zuan. With over 50 to share, the museum wants to convey the impact of these books on textile designers, specifically those designing kimono fabrics, but the exhibition will also look at other sorts of surface pattern created for lacquerware, cloisonné and ceramics. Zuan: Japanese Design Books runs July 5 - October 12, 2014 and compliments the concurrent Kimono for a Modern Age.
