BJA Friendship Café and Visit to the Art Nouveau in Japan Exhibition
The BJA Friendship Committee is thrilled to invite you to visit together the exhibition Art Nouveau in Japan – A Return to the Source of Inspiration supported by the Embassy of Japan in Brussels, followed by a fun Friendship Café at the famous La Machine, a steampunk-inspired café in the trendy Saint-Géry neigborhood.
Art Nouveau’s style and ideology were developed as an answer to the need for a new approach to art and design at the end of the nineteenth century. At the backbone of this development was Japanese art (and Japonisme), which provided a major inspiration to the art and design world of the time. This exhibition introduces the influence and development of Art Nouveau in Japan. It will feature graphic works of artists that were considered central figures linked to the art movement in Japan, and kimono, a medium in which Art Nouveau played an important role.
We will have the great privilege to be guided by Dr. Saskia Thoelen, Fashion and Culture at Bunka Gakuen University and Curator of the exhibition.
Do not hesitate to bring your children, family, colleagues, and friends along to enjoy this wonderful time together with us!
