Summary

The Triennale of KOGEI in Kanazawa is the evolution of “International Conference of Cities Renowned for Arts and Crafts in Kanazawa” and “The World Competition of Arts and Crafts Kanazawa,” whose inception dates back to “International Craft City Declaration” in 1995. While inquiring how KOGEI can be reconciled and positioned in these changing times, the exhibition will introduce new generations of KOGEI to Kanazawa and the world.
