Contemporary Japanese Crafts
The KIKUCHI Kanjitsu Prize Ⅱ
December. 17 － March. 20, 2017
This exhibition is presented as an opportunity for you to see the versatile expressions and potentials in contemporary crafts. The first exhibition was held in FY2014 and this will be the second exhibition.
Works by twelve artists are presented in this exhibition, namely those by Iguchi Daisuke (ceramics), Uematsu Chikuyu (bamboo work), Kamiya Asaho (ceramics), Kamei Yoichiro (ceramics), Kawabata Kentaro (ceramics), Sugiura Noriyoshi (bamboo work), Tanioka Shigeo (bamboo work), Nakada Hiroshi (ceramics), Fujikasa Satoko (ceramics), Mishima Ritsue (glass), Yamamoto Akane (Kirikane glass), and Rusu Aki (metalwork).
Our curators chose the artists with additional suggestions made by specialists invited as advisors from outside. Being a museum that introduces mainly contemporary ceramics, six artists, which comprises half of the entrants, are from the field of ceramics. The “Kikuchi Kanjitsu Prize” will be selected while the exhibition is on view and given to one artist whose activities are recognized to be prominent in order to encourage his or her pursuits.
The enthusiastic efforts of these twelve artists are introduced through approximately sixty new or recent works.
