Collaboration with Posters from the Sogetsu Art Center

The Sogetsu Art Center was founded in 1958 by the third Iemoto Teshigahara Hiroshi who became the director of this institution with the intention to promote artistic exchange.As the epicenter of avant-garde art,it was a place where artists dreamed to perform. Avant-garde artists who gathered in the Sogetsu Art Center, used to produce very original and modern posters for each event. This time eight Ikebanists produced works co- ordinated with those eight avant-garde posters.
