years:October 2012

Amid the deterioration in the relations between Japan and China following the nationalization of the Senkaku Islands in September, an exchange exhibition between Tokyo University of the Arts and Central Academy of Fine Arts, titled ‘Tōkyo Pekin Gendai āto zhi fei zhi(紙非紙)2012’, which had scheduled to open in October, was cancelled due to difficulties in transporting artworks from China and the visit of participating artists to Japan. Another exchange exhibition of artists from Japan and China, titled ‘Nicchū bijutsu ten’, which had been scheduled to open at the National Museum of China in Beijing on October 23, was also cancelled.
