The relationship between Katsui and our museum began during the inaugural exhibition of the “International Poster Triennial in Toyama (IPT)” launched in 1985 by our predecessor, The Museum of Modern Art, Toyama.
e served as a member of the executive committee of the 12th exhibition held last year, in addition to being on the IPT executive committee and judging panel for many years. He had also held a solo exhibition of his works in 2004.
