Since 2018, Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Tokyo Arts and Space (TOKAS) have been organizing the Tokyo Contemporary Art Award (TCAA) for mid-career artists in Japan with the aim of assisting their further progress through continuous support over several years.
The TCAA 2020–2022 exhibition will be held at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo featuring the winners of the second edition of the award, Fujii Hikaru and Yamashiro Chikako.
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.
Artists: Fujii Hikaru, Yamashiro Chikako
