Every year the SIFC aims to bring gifted artists and designers to wider public attention. One hundred artists and design units together represented the gamut of genres, each one with a chance of being selected for prizes and commendations at the end of the four days.
Unlike similar projects such as GEISAI and Design Festa, SIFC is a curated competition, with artists being assessed in a first round and only selected ones being allowed to exhibit. The result is a smaller, tighter kind of event with a lot of talent on display.
Judges included Fumio Nanjo (Mori Museum of Art) and Shigeki Hattori (graf).
TABlog went along to Spiral to catch the final day of the fair, taking in the second of the two fifty-booth selections.
