102nd Nika Art Exhibition

第102回 二科展

Set up by a group of forward-looking, internationally minded artists in 1914, the Nika Association originally rebelled against the Bunten exhibition, a government-run gatekeeper of art that emphasised traditionalism and the maintenance of classic Japanese forms of expression. Introducing ground-breaking Western influences onto the domestic scene, Nika later became a bastion of the avant-garde and has kept going strong for over a century now. The 2017 edition of its annual open exhibition consists of four categories: painting, sculpture, design and photography.
