The Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur (JFKL), is inviting Malaysian artists for The Tokyoiter Exhibition 2024.
The Tokyoiter Exhibition 2024 will celebrate Tokyo’s vibrancy and its residents’ stories.

Five winners will be awarded RM1,000 and will be able to collaborate with JFKL for exhibition prints. The jury panel includes The Tokyoiter’s Andrew Joyce & David Robert, Kenta Chai from KentaWorks Graphic, and CC Kua, a Kuala Lumpur-based artist.
The submission deadline is December 3, 2023. Winners will be announced by December 22, 2023. The Tokyoiter Exhibition will be held from January 20 to February 4, 2024, at Temu House.
