The Embassy of Ireland and the Tokyo University of the Arts are marking the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Ireland and Japan with a prestigious exhibition entitled “A lonely impulse of delight” featuring original works from some of Ireland’s top writers and artists. Inspired by the poetry of W.B. Yeats, these visual artists and authors have created original works in printmaking, photography and the written word.
The exhibition also aims to bring the work of Ireland’s celebrated poet and 1923 Nobel-prizewinner, W.B. Yeats, to contemporary audiences through the work of living artists and writers.
The exhibition opened in Dublin in 2015, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of W.B. Yeats birth and then travelled in Ireland and internationally including venues in the USA, Sweden, UK, France, China and Japan.
