Established in 1907 the Japan Society is New York City’s single major producer of high quality content on Japan for an English-speaking audience. “The Society is an internationally recognized nonprofit, nonpolitical organization that provides access to information on Japan, offers opportunities to experience Japanese culture, and fosters sustained and open dialogue on issues important to the U.S., Japan, and East Asia”. Over the last few years Japanese artists have really pushed the boundaries in working with bamboo as a sculptural medium. Now on display at the Japan Society you can see New Bamboo the world’s first exhibition devoted solely to bamboo works. The exhibition features 23 innovators of all ages who have formed and shaped the bamboo in to beautiful works of art.
