Washitales, An Exhibition by Visual Artist Kyoko Ibe

« All Events

February 3 • 10:00 am - 8:00 pm


Washitales presents the work of renowned visual artist Kyoko Ibe in conjunction with the Lewis Center’s theatrical presentation of Felon: An American Washi Tale by Reginald Dwayne Betts. The set for Felon has been designed and created by Ibe and includes kites constructed of paper (washi) made from the clothes of men who Betts met in prison. “Washi” is traditional Japanese handmade paper. The exhibition, cosponsored by Princeton’s Department of Art & Archaeology, includes work related to the theatrical set and other works by Ibe using handmade paper. Felon: An American Washi Tale is one of a series of collaborations between director and dramaturg Elise Thoron and Kyoko Ibe. A conversation with Ibe will be held on February 23 along with the celebratory launch of a new book documenting Thoron and Ibe’s collaborations, The Way of Washi Tales.
