21th “1_WALL” Graphics Exhibition
This event has ended.
The 21st “1_WALL” Graphics Exhibition will feature works by six finalists after two rounds of judging: the first round focusing on all entrants’ portfolios, and the second round consisting of one-on-one discussions between the graphic designers selected in the initial round and the judges. For this group exhibition, each finalist is allocated one wall on which to show his or her works.
The final round of judging will take place on September 3 (Tue), i.e. while the exhibition is in progress. During this round, which is open to the public, the six finalists will each give a presentation of his or her works, and the judges will then discuss the relative merits of the six contenders’ works and select the Grand Prize winner. The winner’s prize is the privilege of holding a solo show at the gallery one year later, plus 300,000 yen to prepare for the show.
As always, this latest in the series of “1_WALL” Graphics Exhibitions brings together six diverse up-and-coming young designers. Toru Kase uses graphics to express monuments of unimaginable scale. Daisuke Kondo creates drawings using acrylic paints, spray and pen. Maya Kondo depicts imaginary worlds using acrylic gouache. Yoshiki Tanaka makes installations that combine words, drawings and three-dimensional art. Mousho aligns cube-shaped pictures to express the flow of differing times. Yuko Mayumi experiments with wood and photography to crystallize momentary scenes she wants to capture forever.
