Webinar Recording: Talking “Nuno” Visionary Japanese Textile

Japanese textile has never lost its craft spirit after industrialization. A celebrated cultural observer with a deep connection with Japan and the editor of the new book, NUNO: Visionary Japanese Textiles, Naomi Pollock, explores the creative world-vision of one of Japan’s most inventive textile design studios through a captivating dialogue with Anne Higonnet (Art historian and professor at Barnard College/Columbia University).

This free webinar, held on March 4, 2022, commemorated the book launch of NUNO: Visionary Japanese Textiles. It was co-organized by publisher Thames & Hudson and Portland Japanese Garden and moderated by Portland Japanese Garden’s Arlene Schnitzer Curator of Culture, Art, and Education, Aki Nakanishi.
