From May 1st to June 6th, 2021, at the National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Center, the "2021 Taiwan- Japan Contemporary Urushi Art Exchange Exhibition" was co-hosted by the Taiwan Urushi Research Association and the Faye Art
Museum in Yokohama, Japan. There were 56 exhibitors from Taiwan and 24 exhibitors from Japan, exhibiting 132 works. On the day of the exhibition, a lecture on the theme of "Taiwan and Japan Contemporary Urushi Art Exchange and Creation" was provided. In the academic exchange activities and the lectures, the speeches were all delivered in Chinese and Japanese in real-time translation. Participants learned about the diversity of contemporary Urushi art creation through the session on Taiwan Day. Through the planning of the exhibition and related in-depth research, it is found that it has a positive impact and inspiration on the development of Urushi art in Taiwan in the future. Through the exchange of Urushi art, Taiwan markets itself all over the world.
