IBASHO is delighted to announce the Summer exhibition for 2020 which will be a group exhibition on the concept of ‘wabi sabi’.

Wabi sabi as an aesthetic concept is generally described as a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. A beauty of things modest and humble. A beauty of things unconventional.

The exhibition Wabi Sabi is an invitation to explore the elements of wabi sabi in the photographic works of 9 Japanese artists and 3 non-Japanese artists.

And since wabi sabi is closely connected to the tea ceremony (chado), IBASHO has included 2 Japanese ceramic artists, who not only have made matcha bowls but also vases. We are excited to introduce Naoko Sano and Shingo Ohira and to announce that their work can be seen at IBASHO for a longer period of time.


The exhibition will start on Thursday 11 June. Because of COVID-19 we are sadly not able to hold a festive vernissage in our gallery space. We will hold an online vernissage and the gallery space will be open during our normal opening hours from 2 - 6 pm on Thursdays - Sundays and by appointment. We will welcome visitors with a festive drink.
