Sarugaku Masks : Shaping the Culture of Noh

Miho Museum

poster for Sarugaku Masks : Shaping the Culture of Noh

This event has ended.

This exhibition explores the world of sarugaku by presenting a wide variety of masks worn in performances held in three principal areas of the Honshu heartland. The exhibit displays 350 masks made as early as the Nara through late Heian and Kamakura periods, and down to the Nanbokuchō, Muromachi, and Azuchi Momoyama periods when the noh was perfected. Seen mainly from the viewpoint of the history of sculpture but also in the contexts of the history of culture, performing arts, and literature, they shed light on their times.
