Kogei as Contemporary Craft

開催概要

越境する工芸

The 4th Triennale of KOGEI in Kanazawa consists of a competition exhibition, 2019 KOGEI World Competition in Kanazawa, and a special exhibition, KOGEI as Contemporary Craft: Transcending Boundaries. The art of crafts has been changing and expanding with the times. Grasping this field from a global perspective, the competition exhibition introduces expressive, new crafts. Under the theme “KOGEI as Contemporary Craft: Transcending Boundaries,” the special exhibition releases crafts from the conventional framework and looks at the field from a broad perspective. Above all, we focused on how the artists are observing the contemporary age and turning those observations into their artistic expressions instead of solely pursuing the technical elaborateness of crafts. The exhibition introduces a wide range of crafts created with various materials and approaches based on diverse values.
