Beauty in All Things: Japanese Art and Design features 50 objects from the collection of the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD). These works are by Japanese and Japanese-American artists and designers who use traditional materials—such as ceramics, fiber, glass, paper, metal, and bamboo—to create innovative, contemporary works exploring the Japanese ideals of beauty. Some of the pieces push traditional techniques and materials in new directions, and others experiment with new technologies and materials within the context of historical practice. Each work appears in full-color, many with detail shots; each has a short description that includes a biography of the artist or designer. The book also includes essays by MAD curator Jennifer Scanlan and Japanese scholar Liza Dalby, and a list of recommended reading. Beauty in All Things: Japanese Art and Design is the catalogue to the exhibition of the same name, on display at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York from November 22, 2011 to May 27, 2012.
