Ueno Artist Project 2018: “Contemporary SHO—See, Know and Feel Today’s Calligraphy”Poster

The second installment in the Ueno Artist Project series, launched in 2017 to build on our history as the “Home of the Public Entry Exhibition.” This year’s exhibition features artists active in calligraphy groups, with the aim of sharing the wonder and excitement of their work.
The theme this time—“Calligraphy Appreciation.” To enable even newcomers to appreciate contemporary calligraphic works, comments by the artists will accompany the pieces. By seeing the works and sensing their adventurous spirit, viewers both new and veteran will understand the allure of contemporary calligraphy.
