Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum has worked closely with art groups and associations ever since its founding in 1926. On the occasion of its grand reopening, the museum will hold a “Tokyo ‘SHO’” exhibition in building on its history as “the birthplace of the public entry exhibition.”
A cooperative exhibition, the event will feature 18 groups selected by the Public Entry Exhibition Revitalization Planning Examination Board from among calligraphy groups based in the Tokyo and Kanto areas. Besides presenting rising artists of the so-called core generation from each group, the exhibition will also seek to revitalize the public entry exhibition by exposing art groups to works by other groups, thereby providing them with creative stimulation.
The exhibition will display in one location 96 calligraphic works of many genres—not only traditional kanji, kana, and seal-engraving but also modern poetry and avant-garde calligraphy—by 38 artists chosen from the calligraphy groups.
