World Amigurumi Exhibition vol. 4: Dolls for Daily Life!
Through Mar 31, 2018
41-26 27th Street, Long Island City, NY 11101
What started as a unique Japanese crochet art only a few decades ago, amigurumi is now spreading like wild fire across the globe. RESOBOX, as a Japanese cultural community center located in New York, is bringing back the celebration of amigurumi with a new theme by a diverse selection of artists.
Amigurumi are normally used only as cute dolls for display. This year, we’ve decided to explore wider possibilities of amigurumi with the World Amigurumi Exhibition, with unique shapes and innovative ideas. As a result, we are stepping out of the ordinary and asking artists to create amigurumi products that can be used in daily life. Every day objects such as hair brushes, wallets, scarves, tissue box covers were submitted to our exhibition this year! In total, we’ve gathered pieces from 120 artists and 40 countries who have thought of their own creations to be useful in daily life.
