Washington National Opera Presents
Jun Kaneko Exhibition of Ceramic Sculptures
April 17 - May 22, 2017
Hall of Nations

Renowned Japanese American visual artist and painter Jun Kaneko, whose stunning mystical sets and costumes are featured in Washington National Opera's spring production of Madame Butterfly, brings an exhibition of his ceramic sculptures to the Hall of Nations. Balancing elements of both American and Japanese aesthetics, the installation will include pieces from two of his sculpture series: HEADS, large, neutral forms, instantly recognizable as human yet loaded with a vast array of traditions and associations; and Dangos, a term adapted from the Japanese word for "rounded form." Dangos are usually mound-like, freestanding sculptures, molded into an intriguing family of different shapes reflecting a wide range of expression. Further information about the opera may be found here.

Note: This exhibition is FREE and open to the public from 10 a.m. to Building Close.

Please Note: There is NO free parking when attending free events.
