Accepting entries Online: Monday, January 13, 2020-Friday, February 7 Gallery: Monday, February 3, 2020-Friday, February 7 “1_WALL” is a competition aimed at discovering young talents who continue to pursue new expressions. The Grand Prix winner will be given the right to hold a solo exhibition in the Guardian Garden approximately one year later and 300,000 yen for the private exhibition production fee. Today, expressions are becoming increasingly diverse and genre boundaries are becoming vague. I hope that it will be a place to think about new expressions together with people who continue to make works with the foot on the ground without being swept away by fashion. You can still be a “middle person”. I’m looking for works by people who have the potential to look after 5 or 10 years. The application guidelines can be downloaded from the website:
