This exhibition introduces contemporary art medals in a solo exhibition for the first time in Japan. When mentioning contemporary art medals in Japan, people tend to think about the gold and silver medals seen during the Olympics, but in Europe, those are recognized by major museums as a branch of art displayed in collections. With themes and production processes having greatly expanded in the past few years, contemporary art medals are drawing attention. Tetsuji Seta won the Grand Prix at the 2012 FIDEM (International Art Medal Federation) Congress in Glasgow. Featuring production techniques that reproduce plant details with the utmost precision and a unique Zen world view, Seta’s collections have been exhibited in museums and art galleries around the world, including the British Museum. In this exhibition, we present Tetsuji Seta’s latest work as well as documents introducing art medals from overseas countries.
