Open Call for the 12th Annual Shikish Exhibition
at the George J. Doizaki Gallery
The Japanese American Cultural and Community Center (JACCC) is currently
accepting submissions for the 12th Annual Shikishi Exhibition opening on
January 3, 2010 and would like to invite all of the diverse voices in
our community to participate.
Shikishi paper boards have been used in Japan since the twelfth century
for painting and writing poetry. Today, inscribed shikishi are given as
a gift to mark a memorable or special occasion. In 1998, Hirokazu
Kosaka, JACCCís Artistic Director, fused traditional and contemporary
notions of the shikishi by asking over 500 people to celebrate the New
Year by expressing themselves using the boards.
