Kikuchi Biennale IV
This event has ended.
The Kikuchi Biennale is a competition to which entries are invited from the public and has been held every other year since 2004 with the aim of promoting contemporary ceramics. For this seventh Biennale, entries were accepted until the end of June this year and we received 322 works, exceeding the previous occasion. There were entrants from all over Japan and also abroad, ranging broadly from those in their twenties to their eighties. Through the first-stage screening of photographic images and a second-stage screening of the actual works, fifty-two (including five prizewinners) were chosen for this exhibition. With an acceptance rate of approximately sixteen percent, the works that passed the strict examination to be included here each reflect the creativity and skills of their creator and reveal a variety of ceramic expressions.
