Kimono Culture exhibit
The Beauty of Japanese Culture Viewed Through the Lens of Kimono
Guest curated by Hitomi Harama
May 20 – September 3, 2017

This traditional Japanese garb has become ubiquitous inspiration for Western fashion, and in Japan, it is steeped in culture which is deeply rooted in the core aesthetic sense of Japanese life. This exhibit showcases the beauty of Japanese culture through the lens of kimono. Guest curator Hitomi Harama, a resident of Victoria, comes from a family of kimono artisans and collectors from Japan. Exhibit highlights will illuminate the philosophy of kimono: in harmony with nature, coordination with different climate and seasons, attention to detail; the art of kimono: craft and design, dying & weaving techniques and patterns, design motifs; and the ecological aspects: structure of kimono and use of textile materials.
