Tokyo Contemporary Art Award 2020-2022 Exhibition

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Tokyo Arts and Space established the Tokyo Contemporary Art Award (TCAA) in 2018 as a contemporary art prize to encourage mid-career artists to make new breakthroughs in their work by providing them with several year of continuous support.
An award exhibition will be held at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo featuring Fujii Hikaru and Yamashiro Chikako, the winners of the second edition of TCAA for 2020-2022.

Fujii has endeavored to respond to contemporary social issues by always incorporating the perspective of the present while empirically examining historical events in Japan and abroad. In this exhibition, he presents a new work that looks at the postwar debate over Japanese war art paintings from the official documents left behind by the United States occupation forces.

Yamashiro’s practice has centered on her native Okinawa. She says that she finds the vision for her next project during the process of creating a work. She here presents a new piece based on her research in Okinawa, along with related past works.
