“Salon des Refusés” of ATLIA Kawaguchi [New Artist Exhibition] on the web

投稿日:2020-04-08 更新日:


By the way, this is a privilege of personal blog.

No permission has been granted to the selected artist.

Exhibition  was from September 7 ( Sat ) to 23 ( Mon / holiday ) , 2019

In the second judging presentation exhibition, 

We had to prepare the exhibition without any financial support, and I had to do all the import and export for the installation.

YOU were chosen! 

While the festival has been raised,

But, It was pushed down for the reason of open judging.

It was a public execution using the public power of Kawaguchi City to thoroughly bully individual artists.

But don’t dissipate. It’s better not to write bad things on my blog.

I decided to make the “Salon des Refusés”  on the web here.

(exhibition of rejects ) 

So it was 1863. 

that was held in France 150 years ago

 novel Emil Zola’s “Production” (Japanese you need translate)

So, Let’s features of my blog

I am writing Art History Series for Five People.

I decided to attach it as a part of it.


I’m sorry for an artist who was not selected here whose lost.

It is for a simple reason.

On the day of the public competition open judging of ATLIA Kawaguchi, Saitama Prefecture.

Kawaguchi ATLIA curator said that the second party will be held for a fee of 4,000 yen.(40 US doller )

Yeah. What?

I picked up five people including me who was at the same table at the izakaya (Japanese style restaurant ). 

The judge is not guilty.

The judges are just getting a 150 us doller fee to judge.

We were dropped, but they are  making a really good work.

I would like to introduce 5 artists.
