The exhibition Bamboo: Tradition in contemporary form explores the evocative, sensual and sculptural power of contemporary Japanese bamboo art through 22 contemporary and five traditional bamboo works, made possible thanks to the support of Mr S. Baillieu Myer AC and Mrs Sarah Myer. These visually dramatic sculptural forms are complemented by a selection of historical paintings, lacquer ware, musical instruments, woodblock prints and hand-printed books from the NGV Collection and private collection loans.
