Tsubaki-kai 2013 - Shoshin (initial spirit)
This event has ended.
The Tsubaki-kai artists' exhibition group was created in 1947 to mark the post-war reopening of the Shiseido Gallery. The name “Tsubaki” comes from the Japanese word for “camellia,” the flower that has long been the symbol of the Shiseido. (“Kai” means “gathering” or “circle.”) In the decades since, the Tsubaki-kai exhibitions have become one of the Gallery's most popular and representative activities. The membership of the group has changed with each iteration over a period of nearly seventy years, and with over 80 artists participating up to the 6th Tsubaki-kai exhibition held in 2010. In the 7th volume of this event an annual exhibition will be held over a period of 5 years with the artists Genpei Akasegawa, Naoya Hatakeyama, Rei Naito, Zon Ito, and Ryoko Aoki.
Tsubaki-kai aims to be a place to reflect the ideas of many generations and to promote the artists representative of each age.
