Biombo: Japanese Heritage as Legend of Gold
TOKYO  •  Suntory Museum of Art  •  Ongoing
Biombo in Portuguese and Spanish is an equivalent of "byobu" in Japanese meaning folding screens. This exhibition highlights Japanese folding screens, a long cherished interior decor and re-examines their history and roles in Japanese culture from a global perspective. On view are restored screens of which originals were presented to foreign governments or separately owned by various collectors.
