The Sompo 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. FACE is a public entry competition to carry forward Sompo’s 35-year mission of raising and supporting emerging artists.
The 9th FACE exhibition saw the entry of many attractive works from 1,193 emerging artists throughout Japan. The jury members selected 83 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.
