The “SHIBUYA AWARDS 2022” (8th in total), which Yone-chan presides over, held an exhibition of qualifying entries and a party for those involved.
Over 500 entries were received and about 10% qualified. The grand prize will be chosen next year. At the party, “rei-meshi” from Rei Yamada was served! It was great to see Takeru Amano and other people I hadn’t seen in a while.
Now that we have a clear idea of the challenges for next year, I would very much like to support Yone-chan as one of the board members. First of all, I would like to call on emerging artists not only from Asia but from all over the world to increase the number of entries by 10 times. It would be great if we could make “SHIBUYA” a world-class art town.
The exhibition is still open today. Please take a look when you stop by Shibuya.
