Fukuneko: Cat Art at Hyakudan Kaidan
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
The 'hundred-step staircase' (Hyakudan Kaidan) pavilion at Meguro's Gajoen, a Registered Tangible Cultural Asset of Japan, highlights uber-cute cat art over Golden Week for no particular reason – not that you need one to display pieces as purry as these. The selection includes a whopping 1,000 works by nine artists, including ceramic sculptures that recreate ukiyo-e by Edo-era master Utagawa Kuniyoshi, a known cat enthusiast, in 3D form. Although the Hyakudan Kaidan is usually off limits to photographers, they've reversed their policy for the exhibition period and now permit picture-taking throughout the building. Get ready to snap some selfies with your artsy feline friends.
