The Nissan Art Award is an award presented to the emerging generation of artists to further their careers, enhance their presence in the international art world, and create a social environment where people familiarize themselves with art. The award is intended to celebrate new developments in Japanese contemporary art and help provoke debate about visual art by promoting creative emerging artists. Through a prolonged commitment, the award can contribute towards outlining a history of Japanese contemporary art and artists, focusing particularly on their activities in the past two years. As a continuation of the award, Nissan Motor Corporation also adds the works of art to its collection for exhibiting internally and externally with the aim of providing a point of reference on Japanese contemporary art in the international art scene. Not only for the Grand Prix winners, but for all of the previous three editions’ finalists, the award has served as a steppingstone to appearances at major art festivals, exhibitions and fairs around the world, and influential art publications.
