This event has ended.

The Hiroshima Art Prize was established in 1989 by the City of Hiroshima to promote, through art, the “Spirit of Hiroshima” to the wider world. Ms. Doris Salcedo (b. 1958) has been selected as the winner of the 9th Hiroshima Art Prize. She is an artist who has consistently expressed her view that art has the power to resist widespread violence and discrimination in her native Columbia and around the world. In her first exhibition in Japan, she presents works that completely transform the exhibition spaces into places of mourning for the dead while incorporating the hope of rebirth.
