October 5-December 1
Noritaka Tatehana, Artist Lecture
Artist Lecture Saturday ~ October 5, 2019 5-7pm
The designer behind Lady Gaga’s famous heel-less shoes will be giving an alluring artist talk at Portland Japanese Garden in conjunction with his first-ever North American solo art exhibition, Refashioning Beauty (Oct 5 – Dec 1). Fine artist Noritaka Tatehana will discuss his views on Japan’s past, present, and future through the lens of artistry, craftsmanship, fashion, and identity within the current global context.
His most established pieces include the ‘heel-less shoes’ worn by Daphne Guinness and Lady Gaga as well as pieces based on the ‘scents’ of Japanese culture. Tatehana’s many works are a result of his creative activities within the sphere of various traditional crafts spanning across Japan. His talk will explore the development of his philosophy on establishing artistic values and individual voice.
Ticket prices are $35 and will go on sale to the public at 8am Wednesday, (September 4).
