Saito Giju (1904-2001),who was one of the most important pioneers of abstract arts in japan, embodied his original education philosophy in later years at Tokyo School of Arts (TSA 1982-2000). This exhibition is an annual show held by the graduates of that school.

"Zeroist" - the title of this exhibition series - is quoted from the title of one Saito's work in 1950 to express their respect for Saito, and to impress the importance of recurring repeatedly in the ground "zero" of each one's art work.

This year's subtitle "EEJANAIKA" is the word which the common people of the last years of Edo era cried while dancing and marching enthusiastically on the streets. It is said that their behavior was expressing despair for the administrators. So the artists of this exhibition declare by this word that the art must be always anarchy to resist unreasonable power.
