Content

Soetsu Yanagi focused on the powerful beauty of Ainu people's creation from early, and held 'Ainu Crafts and Culture Exhibition' in 1941, which was the first Ainu crafts exhibition in an art museum. Keisuke Serizawa (1895-1984), world-famous dyer, was in charge of installation at the exhibition, and he also highly appreciated the beauty of Ainu handicrafts. In this occasion, the collection of the Museum as well as that of Serizawa will be on display, and introduce a vigorous imagination and profound creativity of Ainu people.
