Renowned in Japan, Kamoda Shoji has not been given a museum survey outside of his native country before this exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (11 December–17 April 2022). Before his death in 1983, Kamoda worked for some 20 years from a studio in the town of Mashiko, which is known for its potteries. With 49 works on display, the exhibition will introduce visitors to some of Kamoda’s trademark techniques, including the ‘wave’ pattern he favoured and his use of coil instead of a wheel to feel closer to his material.
