This event has ended.

Within the next 10 years, Kyoto City University of Arts is planning to move to the Suujin Area, mere minutes from Kyoto station. The area is blessed with the abundant natural scenery of Takasegawa and Kamogawa rivers and a wonderful view of Higashiyama. On one hand it’s a place with many remaining resources, such as a reference library with historical information of the area, a historic primary school and other local landmarks. The area also bears the burden of issues such as the critical situation behind the rapid advance of depopulation, an aging society and the approaching need for community revitalization, however. Under these circumstances, KCUA’ s move creates an important nucleus of community creation. Bringing together national and international artists, this exhibition seizes on the opportunity of being the ‘first step’ in the area for Kyoto City University of Art. We are seeing the internationalization of a multifaceted society where we can’ t help crossing borders in our daily lives; we’ re seeing an increase in the awareness of separate culture. In Kyoto, one can find both the succession of great tradition as well as the cultivation of art culture. Through this exhibition questions regarding this city of international art culture and the new university area are raised.
