Modern Twist: Contemporary Japanese Bamboo Art
Oct 12 - Dec 20, 2014

This international traveling museum exhibition brings together 17 master bamboo artists from Japan with works that display the highest level of material knowledge and skill, transformed into imaginatively crafted sculptural art. These artists have helped to redefine a traditional craft as a modern genre, pushing the medium to groundbreaking levels of conceptual, technical, and artistic ingenuity.

Modern Twist is presented by the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, curated by Dr. Andreas Marks, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and organized by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC. The exhibition was generously supported on Maui by Hamilton and Nancy Harris and Matson Navigation Company with additional funding by the E. Rhodes & Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, Nomura Foundation, Japan Foundation, Los Angeles, and the Snider Family Fund.
