The 3rd Reorganized New Nitten Kyoto Exhibition

 The Nitten, one of the biggest comprehensive public art exhibitions in Japan will travel to Kyoto. The Nitten is a public art competition sponsored by the Public Interest Incorporated Association Nitten. With the goal to develop arts and culture for Japan to be proud of, the First Ministry of Education Art Exhibition (the Bunten) was held in 1907 hosted by the Education Ministry. The name of the exhibition was changed to the Teiten, then the Shinbunten and finally the Nitten; and it has been contributing greatly to the Modern Art of Japan. The exhibition held this year will be the 108th exhibition since the first Bunten.
 
 The 3rd Reorganized New Nitten Kyoto Exhibition is separated into 5 sections: Japanese painting, Western painting, sculpture, crafts, and calligraphy. The exhibition travels around Japan featuring works from artists from all over Japan including artists from Kyoto and Shiga.
 
 All the artworks of this exhibition meet high standards, and it is one of the best exhibitions to understand the form of contemporary Japanese art.
