Fukuneko: Cat Art at Hyakudan Kaidan

  • Art

Time Out says

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.
