Art for Breakfast 2021: Everett Kennedy Brown| ArtistVIEW EVENT DETAILS
March 22 - "Archaic Future: A New Vision for Creating Legacy Art"
Join us for a breakfast roundtable with Everett Kennedy Brown to hear about his latest book project, Archaic Future. The images from this book are now touring museums in Europe and the United States and are the first part of his major project to visually excavate Japanese history.
Digging deep below the surface of contemporary Japanese culture, Everett works with traditional ceramic and Nihonga painting techniques on glass plate negatives to make images that challenge our perceptions of time. During our breakfast roundtable he will also talk about his vision for the Kyoto Kaisho Foundation and his work to promote cultural projects that will have historical value one hundred years from now.
