■Exhibition “WOOD LIKE”
Mokuhanga is primarily known for its elaborate traditional techniques. Modern artists, however, apply the technique of Mokuhanga to their works in various ways. It looks like literally “so many men, so many minds”.
This exhibition was planned and organized by Misaki Oguro, and 3 artists (Misaki Oguro, Alberto Nieto and Kei Yamazaki) took part in it. They value works as well as their time and act of production.

■Workshop ” Mokuhanga using a Smartphone”
In these days you can take, edit and process photo, not using a special program on PC, but using only your smart phone. In this workshop the participants learned an easy way of processing images. They made Mokuhanga prints using the processed images as designs.

■Symposium “Talking about the future of Mokuhanga”
Mokuhanga is familiar to Japanese people, thus they have stereotyped view of Mokuhanga and aren`t interested in it. We discussed about further development of Mokuhanga.
