*Seiji Togo Memorial Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Museum of Art will be closed from Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020 to cooperate with measures to prevent the further infection and spreading of the coronavirus disease (COVID-2019). A special exhibition “FACE 2020” currently held at the museum will also be terminated on March 1st, 2020.
The 8th FACE exhibition saw the entry of many attractive works from 875 emerging artists throughout Japan. The jury members selected 71 works of international appeal through a process of time-consuming consideration. Four Excellent Work Award winners each year will exhibit their works at a group show of 12 artists to be held every three years.
The Sompo Japan Fine Art Foundation established the “Shorei-Sho Award” (or the “Outstanding Rising Artists Award”) for emerging artists and the “Seiji Togo Memorial Museum Grand Prix Award” for established artists in 1977. Since then, the foundation has been organizing exhibitions of award winners.
