Joseph Walsh’s Japan Debut at the Tsubaki Grand Shrine

To commemorate the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and Ireland, Yufuku Gallery Tokyo, in collaboration with Joseph Walsh Studios of Cork, Ireland, is proud to announce the debut exhibition of Irish artist Joseph Walsh in Japan, to be held at the venerable Tsubaki Grand Shrine in Suzuka City, Mie Prefecture from the 16th of November to the 10th of December, 2017.

The Tsubaki exhibition will be the very first time that Mr Walsh’s works will be exhibited in Japan, and will also mark the first stage in a three-part project to introduce the works of Joseph Walsh in Japan. The second stage will be held at the Sogetsu Art Centre, the headquarters of the famed School of Ikebana flower arrangement, within their atrium designed and created by the legendary sculptor Isamu Noguchi, whereas the third stage is currently slated for 2020 in a public venue that will be announced in 2018.

Mr Walsh will be exhibiting 3 new and original chairs, influenced by and made specifically for the Tsubaki Shrine. In white ash, with no use of leather and silhouettes pure and clean, the works for the first stage of Joseph’s Japan Project will be aptly placed in the Main Shrine of the Tsubaki.
