Emerging Artists Support Program

The program for artists, a support program for aspiring planners (curators) was implemented in 2006, inviting young exhibition organizers to apply with concrete plans for art shows.
In the previous two rounds, we received next to entries from planners (curators) also numerous exhibition proposals from artists planning exhibitions with their own participation. Many of those artists' self-produced exhibition outlines were based on innovative ideas for types of art beyond existing genres.
Responding to this trend, we expanded the program by adding another section for "Self-producing Newcomer Artists" to the existing "Young Exhibition Planners" section in 2008. Selected projects will receive support from Tokyo Wonder Site, to be put into practice in the form of exhibitions at TWS Hongo.
