With increasing global interest in traditional Japanese culture, opportunities for Japanese art to be introduced outside of Japan have also been increasing in recent years. This year’s symposium will be held to explore the roles that collections of Japanese art abroad have played in society and the steps necessary for their meaningful utilization in the future. Prominent specialists of Japanese art from within and outside of Japan will be brought together to share their perspectives and first-hand experiences. The public is invited to attend the symposium in order to gain a better understanding of the current state of Japanese art collections abroad and to explore what is required for their effective use.
