Juz Kitson is amongst a group of ten contemporary Australian artists selected to produce new work for the commemorative SODEISHA: connected to Australia 2019 exhibition at Newcastle Art Gallery.
This exhibition in part, celebrates the 40th anniversary of the SODEISHA: Avant Garde Japanese Ceramics exhibition that toured Australia between 1979 and 1981. The original exhibition featured the work of 32 Japanese artists and at the culmination of the tour, the Sodeisha group gifted a substantial portion of the work to the Newcastle Art Gallery.
