While there are still a lot of grey areas in the economic, ecological, political and social realms this year, it’s safe to say that this isn’t the case for the future of the art industry. More and more artists are showing their skills. Furthermore, more people are embracing the beauty and importance of art.
In the UK, museums play a huge role in tourism. Many tourists flock to the country to check out the culture, culinary scene as well as the art installation and masterpieces. Aside from the UK, other countries also love experiencing art. Because of that, every year, there are exhibits showcased all over the world. Below are some of the world’s most interesting collection in 2018.
The Chodiev Kubota Collection
The Kubota Exhibition is comprised of 48 pieces of hand-painted kimonos. Itchiku Kubota from Japan created the fine prints on more than 100 kimonos using tsuijigahana, a five-century-old dyeing technique. The Kubota collection is world famous for its exceptional design and rich story. Anyone who sees the collection can see the amount of effort put into each kimono.
Recently, the International Chodiev Foundation bought the entire collection of Kubota kimonos because the Itchiku Kubota Museum almost went bankrupt. ICF handles the exhibition of the collection. The ICF team has been bringing the collection to many locations over the years. In 2018, it is displayed at the Museum of Arts, Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute.
