Contemporary Japanese Woodcut exhibition

organized by the Le Vall Art Gallery

in the State Art Gallery of Novosibirsk

July 26 - September 6, 2000

The idea of this project appeared in my talks with Japanese artist Yuriko Miyoshi. We have discussed it for quite a long time and as a result - several one-person exhibitions (Yo Takahashi, Kouichi Kitamura, Yasuyuki Ueda) were realized in the Le Vall Art Gallery which were later combined into a single show - Japanese Contemporary Woodcut. Several prints of Seiko Kawachi were also exhibited. I have heard a lot of positive responses both from Russian participants as well as from foreigners visited this exhibition in Novosibirsk.

It becomes a good tradition to show Japanese prints in Russia. The first large exhibition ("Livig Faces - 40+1") was organized in 1998. The second large project (International folding fan exhibition) was realized in 1999.
