In 2015, “The Hall of Awa Japanese Handmade Paper“ museum will hold the 2nd Awagami International Miniature Print Exhibition (‘AIMPE’) ; an exhibition of mini prints created on any type of Japanese washi paper.
The 1st AIMPE in 2013 celebrated the 25th anniversary of the museum and we were most honored to receive 938 artworks (by 598 artists from 39 countries) for the show. With such a positive response to the 1st exhibition, we have started to make preparations for the 2nd ‘AIMPE’ to be held in 2015.
This exhibition shall be a global collaboration between Japan (with its 1400 years of washi paper culture) along with the artistic culture of fine-art printmaking. By holding this exhibition in Awa Tokushima, (the home of washi) we hope to encourage the advancement of both regional culture and washi paper culture in general. The ‘AIMPE’ exhibition is open to all international artists, professional and amateur alike. We look forward to attracting many talented printmakers from Japan and around the world. to participate in this juried show.
