About our site and “Basketry Exhibition”■

Basketry Exhibition has been held since 1986.

At first, some students of Hisako Sekijima organized by themselves for their first exhibition. Many experimental and interesting

works were exhibited. It was 18 years ago.

Since then the exhibition has been held once a year. These exhibitions were good opportunities for our seeking individual styles.

Many interesting works were born.

As I said, we organized our exhibitions by ourselves, and the system doesn’t change. We don’t have a specific office and a

representation.  We don’t have any jury who evaluates our works, so we exhibit works each artist wants to show. In other

words, the artists are responsible to them.

Now, some artists who are active in the fiber art field become to join in the exhibition.

As a result, a great variety of works made with various materials and techniques are seen..

One of the aims of the web site is to show and tell about what “Basketry Exhibition” is alike to you and the world.

Especially, the artists page is one of our highlights. Please check their works and you will know about contemporary basketry

works by Japanese artists of the fiber field.
