NITESHA KYOTO is pleased to announce an exhibition accompanying the release of Basket of Dreams by Daniel Niles. This newly published book, distributed by NITESHA and Eocene Arts, explores the significance of basketry in the human experience. With over one hundred photos, nineteen short essays, and one poem, Basket of Dreams explores basketry as an original technology and most ancient art, featuring the bamboo baskets made in mid-century Japan, when basketry became a unique form of modern art.

The exhibition at NITESHA KYOTO features six bamboo baskets made by Yokota Hosai, a master mid-century bamboo artist who worked with Charlotte Perriand in Japan and France. It will also include the baskets of other 20th century masters, such as Iizuka Rokansai, Tanabe Chikuunsai II, and Wada Waichisai III, featured in the book.

Daniel Niles is professor of geography at the Research Institute for Humanity and Nature, Kyoto. His photos have been published in the Anthropocene Curriculum of the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, and his writings on material culture, aesthetics, and environmental knowledge have been published by Oxford University Press, Kyoto University Press, the journals Nature Sustainability,Techniques & Culture, and elsewhere.
