Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation Art Prize


The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation invites submissions for 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.

daiwa-logoThe 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.

Artists applying for the prize are required to submit images or documentation of four recent works, in any medium (including painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, installation, video etc), a supporting CV and personal statement.

Applications are made online.

Deadline for entries: 30 September 2014
