Jun Kaneko: Blurred Lines Opening Reception

Be the first to experience the groundbreaking, monumental works of internationally renowned artist Jun Kaneko at the Akron Art Museum.

Be the first to experience the groundbreaking, monumental works of internationally renowned artist Jun Kaneko at the Akron Art Museum. Chosen for their powerful yet contemplative presence, many works featured in Blurred Lines are drawn from the artist’s private collection and represent transformational moments in his career. See how Kaneko pushes the boundaries of ceramics, sculpture and painting, all the while melding influences from the East and West.

Central to Kaneko’s artistic exploration is a sense of play and experimentation, which drives his restless creativity. His large-scale hand-built ceramic sculptures often exceed seven feet in height and weigh thousands of pounds.
