Feature Exhibition: In Commemoration of the 100th Daizō-e Exhibition The Eastward Expansion of Buddhism: Art of the Buddhist Canon
July 29, 2015 - September 6, 2015

The Daizō-e is an exhibition of Buddhist art and manuscripts organized by Kyoto's Buddhist universities that has been held annually in Kyoto since 1915 (Taishō 4). The name Daizō-e honors the the Taishō Daizōkyō, a massive compendium of all the scriptures in the Buddhist canon (tripiṭaka), which began publication during the Taishō era (1912–1926). In honor of the centennial anniversary of the Daizō-e, the Kyoto National Museum is holding a major exhibition of manuscripts as well as paintings and objects, all of which further our understanding of the history of the spread of Buddhism throughout Asia.
