This exhibition introduces 8 Japanese artists who participated in Exchange Residency Program to stay and work in the cities abroad for 1-3 months. Each artist went through various experiences in the different culture and communities that deepen his/her artistic career with fruitful outcomes. Their achievements throughout their activities will be presented in the form of installation works and documentation.
Ever since its opening in 2001, Tokyo Wonder Site has undertaken a wide range of programs to support and foster young artists. One such program, TWS-Emerging, is associated with the open call exhibition, Tokyo Wonder Wall, which has been providing talented young artists with a gateway to success. Each year, 100 artists are selected from approximately 1000 applicants.
TWS-Emerging offers the opportunity for those selected artists to take part in another exhibition at Tokyo Wonder Site, we have introduced over 250 artists. For TWS-Emerging 2017, 9 young artists were chosen to show their works at TWS Hongo. They are also invited to participate in a number of programs at TWS as well as residency programs conducted in association with overseas residencies under TWS's international exchange programs.
