GRAPHIC TRIAL 2024 -asobi- begins

We are pleased to host Graphic Trial again this year.
The theme of this year's Graphic Trial, its 18th installment, is "asobi (play)". We are transitioning toward an unconventional, tolerant and generous world that embraces diversity and individuality. This year's exhibition features creative works by artist HIBINO Katsuhiko, graphic designer OKAZAKI Tomohiro, "Design no Hikidashi" editor-in-chief TSUDA Junko & graphic designer OSHIMA Idea, and Toppan Inc.’s creative director IKUSHIMA Daisuke, in collaboration with Toppan Inc.’s printing directors. Please enjoy new frontiers of printing expression from their works created in a free and playful spirit and empowered by various printing processing techniques and media expressions.
On behalf of the Museum, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all those who have generously supported us in organizing this exhibition.
