To commemorate the tenth anniversary of its opening, JP Tower Museum INTERMEDIATHEQUE held the special exhibition “Birds in Paradise.”
The present exhibition was organized by the University Museum, the University of Tokyo (UMUT) and L’ÉCOLE School of Jewelry Arts, an initiation school aiming to introduce the public to all aspects of jewelry culture and created in 2012 with the support of the French High Jewelry Maison Van Cleef & Arpels.
The exhibition combined approximately 100 pieces of jewelry featuring bird motifs with bird specimens, scientific materials, and works of art, and attempted to foster a “dialog” across the fields of jewelry, natural history, and decorative arts, taking a scientific and artistic perspective on birds.
Date: Jan 20 (Fri) – May 7 (Sun), 2023
Venue: Intermediatheque 3F
