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 judging panel is:
Hideki Aoyama, Gallerist, Aoyama | Meguro Gallery, Tokyo
Richard Deacon, artist
Mami Kataoka, Senior Curator, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo
Chris Orr RA, artist
Jonathan Watkins, Director of Ikon Gallery, Birmingham
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 shortlist 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 were 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. The 2015 Daiwa Foundation Art Prize winner will be invited to exhibit at the Aoyama | Meguro Gallery in Tokyo.
Deadline for applications: 30 September 2014
Artists applying for the prize are required to submit documentation of four recent works, in any medium (including painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, installation, video etc), a supporting CV and personal statement. Entry is free. Applications are made online.
