11/15 KOGEI Art Fair Kanazawa 2019 Official Lecture | What will change if the National Craft Center is established in Ishikawa and Kanazawa?
[KOGEI Art Fair Kanazawa 2019 Official Lecture]
KOGEI Art Fair Kanazawa started in 2017 as the only art fair in Japan that sends new aesthetics and values of crafts to the world. This art fair is a place where you can see and touch the world's crafts, and it is an opportunity to get in touch with galalists and artists and meet new “KOGEI”. This year, from November 15th to 17th, 32 galleries from Japan and overseas will gather to display and sell about 120 works from up-and-coming young artists to globally active artists. In addition, we invite experts from Japan's leading crafts and art fairs as official lectures to talk about the value and market of crafts.
