About the Exhibition:

As part of a cultural enterprise commemorating 150 years of friendly relations between Japan and Belgium, this is an international exchange art exhibition featuring 32 artists representing both countries.

In Kanazawa, with its rich history of international exchange as sister city of 45 years to Ghent, Belgium, which retains a strong remnant of the Middle Ages, we host an art exhibition of a collection of pieces by artists leading the modern age in both countries, in order to further deepen cultural exchanges and cross-cultural understanding in the future.

Most of the participating artists for both countries have a deep connection to Ghent or Kanazawa.
