Ippodo Gallery is pleased to participate in Peace is … Coexistence: Tea Ceremony for Peace and Innovation at the United Nations in New York which was held on Friday, May 18th at 2pm in the UN Visitors Centre General Assembly Lobby.
“Peace is…” is an ongoing project to focus Art and Culture as a medium through which we can better connect with the UN and its agenda. While on its own art may not solve the world’s conflicts, it can provide vision and inspiration as we strive for peace. Overseen by the Permanent Mission of Japan facilitating the showcase of Japanese artists residing in New York for certain time of period, this event supports the STI (Science, Technology, and Innovation) Forum in June, aiming to advance ongoing Sustainable Development Goal agendas and objectives.
The audience enthusiastically shared the spirit of Coexistence and Innovation through our ZEN-An ( the suitcase tea house designed Kuniji Tsubaki ) presentation. The calligraphy 'Kyo Sei' (Coexistence) by Suikei Saito made beautiful harmony with ZEN-An, and our selected tea bowls entertained each ambassador with ITO-EN's green tea!
