DAIWA FOUNDATION ART PRIZE
The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation is delighted to announce the third Daiwa Foundation Art Prize, which offers a British artist a first solo show at a gallery in Tokyo, Japan. In addition, the winning artist is awarded a participation fee of £5000, and a period of support and introductions to key individuals and organisations in the Japanese contemporary art world.
The triennial prize is open to British artists resident in the UK who have not previously had a solo exhibition in Japan. The judging panel will first select a short list of three artists whose works will be exhibited at the Daiwa Foundation Japan House Gallery, London in June 2015, during which time a winner is announced.
The two previous Daiwa Foundation Art Prizes have been awarded to Marcus Coates in 2009, who had a solo exhibition at Tomio Koyama Gallery, Tokyo, and to Haroon Mirza in 2012, whose solo show was held at SCAI THE BATHHOUSE, Tokyo in early 2013.
An exhibition of the three selected short listed artists for the Daiwa Foundation Art Prize will be held at the Daiwa Foundation Japan House, 13/14 Cornwall Terrace (Outer Circle), London NW1 4QP.
The winning artist’s solo show will be held at the partner gallery, Aoyama | Meguro Gallery, Tokyo, Japan.
The 2014 selection panel is:
, Gallery Director, Aoyama | Meguro Gallery, Tokyo
, Chief Curator, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo
