For the countless number of budding visual artists in Japan, 3331 Arts Chiyoda’s “Independents” exhibitions, which are held in the event space’s main gallery, offer the chance to publicly show works and get feedback from some of the most prominent artists, critics and curators in the country.

Based on the independent artist exhibitions that were held in Paris during the 19th century, “3331 Independents” allows anyone to present their work for a nominal fee. And if an artist’s piece impresses the guest judges, he or she wins the chance to display more works in a future exhibition.
