Porcelain Painting

The National Art Center, Tokyo, Second Floor Gallery 2B

(Roppongi, Minato-ku) ​


Not constrained by the bounds of traditional Japanese kogei craft arts, Japanese artists have continued to pass down and spread knowledge and skills of traditional arts from other nations of Europe and America. Held at the National Art Center, Tokyo, this exhibition will be for such artists. We are calling for artists whose craft works transcend genres and have a high level of artistry.
