Noriko Maeda: Foundations Echoes in Culture
August 15 – September 3, 2019

Celebrating the one-year anniversary of the publication of her book, NorikoMaeda: FOundations, an exhibition of key works and a video will be presented at the Gallery.

“The art of Japanese calligraphy is intimately tied to the act of translation. It is read, interpreted and transforms itself in innumerable ways as its impulses flow through culture. It draws inspiration from surprising places and
inspires new thought where least expected. On the one year anniversary of the publication of Noriko Maeda: Foundations, this exhibition and video present two of the book’s first echoes in the Canadian cultural landscape.
Against this backdrop, this unique exhibition event presents a panel of artists and cultural figures who will join Noriko Maeda in a conversation on the ways in which the book and Japanese calligraphy in general have found
echoes in their own creations beyond the domain of calligraphy. ”
