The Curatorial Exchange Program began in FY2014
through financial support provided by the Agency for Cultural Affairs. The program seeks to
promote international exchange among curators and other museum staff whose work involves Japanese art,
the training and education of this staff, especially junior curators, and research on Japanese art held by institutions
outside of Japan. These goals are being pursued through the creation of an international
network of museum staff, and an annual symposium, meeting, workshop,
and overseas survey of Japanese art.
