William Morris - Brain Trust Inc.

This exhibition will introduce Morris’s life as a designer by tracing the often overlooked time periods of Morris’s life, such as his childhood and his time as a student, all the way to his later years. Morris’s creative activities are deeply connected to his surroundings at the time of his work, such as his ‘home’, ‘school’ and ‘workplace’. In this exhibition, scenic photos taken by photographer Mineko Orisaku will be showcased alongside a chronicle of Morris’s life as a designer divided into 6 chapters. Additionally, with the special cooperation of Osaka University of Arts, this exhibition will showcase all 66 volumes of work published by “The Kelmscott Press” (a printing company established by Morris in his final years) in two parts.

This exhibition will invite the visitor to take delight in the world of William Morris.
