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 2016, 18 young artists were chosen to show their works at TWS Shibuya. 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.
WONDER SEEDS is an open call exhibition aimed to select and sell potential works of young artists at a venue. This program was designed in 2003, to support young artists following the concept of "BUY = SUPPORT"; giving an opportunity to connect young artists and art lovers/collectors.
Approximately 80 selected entries of accessible small works (paintings, prints, illustrations, photographs, etc.) from all across Japan will be displayed and sold. At WONDER SEEDS, not only young artists will learn the notion of selling their artworks, but also art fans will experience the awareness of art ownership.
