To coincide with International Women’s Day on March 8th, “Blossom Blast” (a movement of female artists) is holding their second exhibition to raise awareness for women’s rights. Women around the world continue to face inequality and discrimination, something which also remains prevalent within the arts. Practicing female artists are outnumbered by their male counterparts and generally receive a lower average price for their work. Despite global improvements and a surge of female empowerment in recent years, widespread gender inequality in Japan remains an unacceptable and shocking situation. In addition to curator Miki Saito, the exhibition features the work of Kuristina Culina, Hannah van Ginkel, Sabrina Horak, calligrapher Mami, Kit Pancoast Nagamura, and Rika Shimasaki. Discussions, workshops and an art salon will also be held during the exhibition period – check the website or facebook event page for full details.
