Daiwa Art Prize
The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation has announced its shortlist for the Daiwa Foundation Art Prize 2012. The prize is open to British artists resident in the UK who have not previously had an exhibition in Japan. The winner gets a solo show at a gallery in Tokyo plus a period of support, introductions to key persons and organisations in the Japanese contemporary art world and a "participation fee" of £5000. Over 700 artists submitted work this year (title link). And who do you think was among the judges selecting tosh for Japan? Grayson Perry (CLICK)! Dunno what the photo shows or who made it. Art? No way. A gardener's cloche?
