closed Task Kyoto

The show

The Civic Museums of Monza and the TASK School of Kyoto (Traditional Arts Super College of Kyoto) celebrate a collaboration now in its third year with an exhibition that investigates the relationship between art and craftsmanship, tradition and experimentation. In comparison, two didactic and formative realities in some ways similar and yet so different, the TASK school in Kyoto, a cornerstone of the maintenance of the ancient refined artisan techniques of the centuries-old Japanese tradition, and the Istituto Superiore Industrie Artistiche (ISIA) of Monza, active in Villa Reale between the two Wars, perfect synthesis of the union between artistic talent and artisan practice.


On display, for the part dedicated to the Japanese school, the skillful mastery of the young students of the upper course of the TASK in Kyoto is highlighted by a photographic review of the works carried out last year, while some pieces on display are witnesses to the art of working the pottery imparted in the school in recent years.


For the part of the exhibition dedicated to ISIA, some pieces of the decorative repertoire were selected - the school's legacy at the Civic Museums - including the large donations Ugo Zovetti and Luca Crippa, and the mosaic tile "Departure of the legionary" by Salvatore Fancello, exhibited on the occasion of the VI edition of the Milan Triennale in 1936 and proposed for the first time in the rooms of the Museum.
