Art Award Tokyo 2007
This event has ended.
There are many art universities and colleges in Japan. There are also many young people with excellent talents who do not belong to a school but aspire to become an artist. The great discrepancy here is that there is not an adequate system that could further cultivate these talents.
Looking back on the world since the 1990s, the art scene has become extremely activated by a movement toward globalization, largely due to the advent of the internet. And yet, here in Japan there is an absence of active critics and institutions that can bring young and talented people out into the world, and that gap is widening year by year.
A.A.T. will perform a research on the graduation exhibitions of major art schools to select and nominate a group of artists to show their works at the brand-new exhibition space in Marunouchi called Gyoko Chika Gallery. Awards will be given after an open jury and open discussion by a committee of critics, curators and educators. The purpose of the award is simply to support the artists’ production fees.
