PATinKyoto Print Art Triennale 2013 in Kyoto opened at Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art (Sakyo-ku, Kyoto) on February 23rd (Sat), 2013. The opening had been preceded by a private show, an award ceremony and a reception on the 22nd (Fri).
While most art competitions invite entries from the public, the Triennale is unique in that entries are recommended by commissioners who have a keen artistic sense and are well informed about printmaking. Also, for exhibition, each artist is provided with a 10 m long wall or a floor area of 50㎡. Thanks to this relatively wide space, artists can exhibit a series of works or a large installation-style work.
At the private show, works of 21 artists were exhibited which expressed the world view of their creator, taking advantage of the wide space. At the following award ceremony, the Grand Prix, the Award for Excellence and the Special Award, from Nissha Foundation for Printing Culture and Technology, were presented to awardees. Fumiko Takeda, an artist living in Tokyo, received the Special Award. She was presented with a certificate of merit and an auxiliary prize by President Suzuki (Chairman of the Board of Directors of Nissha Foundation for Printing Culture and Technology) who also serves as Vice Chairman of the Executive Committee for PATinKyoto Print Art Triennale in Kyoto.
