Purpose

The International Exhibition of Glass Kanazawa was first established in 1984. It then expanded to be the world’s only international glass exhibition with an open call in 1988, and this year we enjoy its 15th event. In each of the past events, the Exhibition received a lot of excellent works from many nations and retions, and it has built a high reputation as “the world showcase of the contemporary glass art.”

Kanazawa city is renowned as one of the most traditional cities in Japan. Blessed with the natural abundance of the four distinct seasons, the city has nurtured various kinds of traditional arts and crafts, which are naturally blending in the daily lives of the local people. This Exhibition has been repeated for the purpose of fostering in Kanazawa a new culture of life and industries utilizing “glass,” expecting that they would stimulate the creativity of other fields of traditional arts and crafts and that of the local industries.

We hope that this Exhibition will help to explore the potential of glass. As ever, we look forward to receiving a wide variety of excellent glass works from home and abroad, from daily utensils to new artistic expressions.
