Globus Washitsu – 889 Broadway (between 19th and 20th Streets)
Kyoto-based contemporary kimono designers Modern Antenna will have its American premiere of their beautiful line of youthfully spirited kimono.
The exhibition is in collaboration with Globus Washitsu, a tatami-mat oasis near Union Square that serves as an exhibition and tea ceremony space as well as a ryokan (traditional Japanese inn) for artists visiting from Japan. The Modern Antenna creators will be participants in Globus Washitsu’s Artists in Ryokan Residence program.
With mannequins by Ralph Pucci, the exhibition will display Modern Antenna’s characteristic kimono, which have bright colors and bold graphic prints.
