The 6th Tokyo International Mini-Print Triennial 2018|多摩美術大学

The Tokyo International Mini-Print Triennial was launched in 1995 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Tama Art University’s foundation, and has now reached its sixth edition. Starting with the fifth Triennial, which coincided with the university’s 80th anniversary, we accept submissions through a worldwide, online open call, and have also begun accepting works in digital print form. We received nearly 2,000 print works from 94 countries and regions. At the Triennial, we will exhibit 324 of these works, which have passed a first review based on a photograph of the work and the second review of the original work.Over the 23 years since the first Triennial in 1995, the intense social changes and shifts in the global power structure at the close of the 20th century have continued into the 21st, and there are calls for various changes and developments in the role and potential of art as well. These changes can be seen in the Triennial, as new generations of participants submit different kinds of works, and in addition to the distinctive characteristics of art from various countries and regions, there is a strong sense of possibilities for fusion and generation of a new, international sensibility for a new era. We hope to encourage the creation and expansion of new artistic expression, and to be a driving force in changing perspectives on art and the world, through the incorporation of various new approaches and devices that make use of new and old technologies and social systems, including submission, collection and distribution of works via the Internet and by traditional post, so as to bring the magic of printmaking to a wider audience.Above all, we will be delighted if Triennial attendees can feel the effervescent artistic energy emanating from each work, full of creativity and sensitivity, like stars in the small universe of mini-prints.We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the artists who submitted works and to all the groups, organizations and stakeholders that gave us crucial assistance in staging the Triennial with their cooperation, sponsorship, subsidization and support.Chairman of the Board of DirectorsFujitani NobutoTama Art UniversityTokyo International Mini-Print Triennial 201803
