Join us for a special lecture, demonstration, & performance with show curator and renowned ceramist, Akira Satake, and distinguished Ikebana artist, Sheila Advani to mark the opening of our new exhibition, “Floating Islands: Ceramic Ikebana Vessels.”
To open our new, collaborative exhibition, Mr. Satake will join us for a special lecture in which he will talk about his work and experience as both a ceramic and ikebana artist, focusing on his creative philosophy and his personal vision for this exhibition. He will discuss some of his work as a composer, and will perform a mini concert with shamisen and banjo. Distinguished Ikebana artist Sheila Advani, who holds the advanced master degree of komon from the Sogetsu School of Ikebana, will also join us for this lecture to discuss the history and schools of Ikebana, and her own views regarding the relation of an Ikebana arrangement to its ceramic vessel. Following her lecture, Ms. Advani will hold a live demonstration of an ikebana arrangement.
