CfSHE Gallery

Gallery description

CfSHE (Centre for the Science of Human Endeavor) Gallery is specialized in contemporary water-based woodblock prints (Mokuhanga). It is originally the place to show the result of MI-LAB AIR programs.

Founded in 2011, MI-LAB (Mokuhanga Innovation Lab) is an artist-in-residence program designed to provide extensive knowledge of Japanese traditional water-based woodblock printmaking and its techniques to international artists, printmakers and teachers of printmaking, as well as to enable them to make use of traditional tools and materials.

CfSHE Gallery organizes exhibitions, workshops, discussions and forums that are related to MI-LAB programs and to Mokuhanga in general. Through its annual program of workshops and presentations, MI-LAB / CfSHE Gallery encourages participating artists to broaden their professional skills and to engage in networking, with the aim of encouraging the mutual development of printmakers throughout the world. Among the instructors and participants there are some remarkable professional printmakers.
