33rd National Exhibition of Students' Prints
This event has ended.
This is the 33rd installment of this annual exhibition, which the Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts has hosted since its opening.
This is an important exhibition for scrutinizing the past year's accomplishments by each university. The students' works not only display the techniques learned through their university courses, but also challenge our very concept of art and society through sophisticated artistic expression. Past exhibitors are currently working as artists in various fields. In this light, this exhibition carries a lot of potential and hope for the future of printmaking.
Please visit the museum website for details on related events and more.

From 2008-12-06 To 2008-12-21
The most diverse selection of printmaking techniques I've seen in Tokyo so far. I was happily supprised that the whole exhibition space was filled to the bring with nothing but prints. Since it's an exhibition of students' works it is a good chance to get a taste for where contemporary art is headed. And from this years display I would have to say it is heading in a great direction. Its a bit far out but it is totally worth the commute!!!
