In Fall/Winter 2022, twenty-one young talents from Japan, from late teens to early twenties, embarked on a one-of-a-kind journey around Kyoto, where they participated in workshops, field trips, lectures, and visits to artisans in the fields of I-shoku-jyu (necessities of life).


Guided by mentors at the forefront and collaborating with interdisciplinary peers, the participants apply modern technologies such as AI and blockchain to create five artworks that showcase their findings and entrepreneurial curiosities to question tea, textiles, portraits, rooms, and some of the modern lifestyles. 


Be a part of this journey and witness the intersection of the future culture and 1,000 year-old aesthetic sensibility. 

Join us on February 17th, 18th, and 19th at NowHere Gallery in SoHo, New York City, to see the works of forward thinkers and experience the Tea Pairing sessions.
