2021 Juried Exhibition — Sumi-Fusion: International Mokuhanga Exhibition

As one of its central events, the International Mokuhanga Conference 2021 is very pleased to announce Sumi-Fusion: International Mokuhanga Exhibition, which will take place from December 1 to 4, 2021, at Nara Prefectural Cultural Hall as well as being presented virtually.
While the conference itself is themed around the concept of sumi and its versatility in water-based woodblock printing (mokuhanga), and the presence of black and its relation to color, the juried exhibition will celebrate classic applications of mokuhanga, as well as contemporary fusions and new approaches to this historic art within the wider disciplinary world of print-media and contemporary art.

Jurors: Leonie Bradley (Editor Printmaking Today / Artist / UK), Hiroko Furuya (Professor, Tama Art University / Japan), Takuji Hamanaka (Artist / US+Japan), Kari Laitinen (Former Senior Lecturer / Aalto University / Finland), Yasu Shibata (Master Printer, PACE Editions / US+Japan), Annu Vertanen (Professor, Academy of Fine Arts / Finland)
