Acceptable Art Mediums
There are no limitations regarding genre. However, artists must either use the exhibition space provided or find space themselves with the permission of the owner.
Furthermore, the planned piece, following the “版/han” theme, must be something that can be funded under the conditions of the “Aomori Print Triennale 2014.”
Finally, artists who are selected will be expected to produce their proposed piece at the designated place.
The theme for all of art works that will be solicited through this open and public application process is “print/han.”
Taking the meaning of “版/han” in the broadest sense, it can refer to “propagation and replication” or “from absolute nothingness to limitlessness.”
We leave the ultimate definition to the imagination of each artist.
Conditions for entry
It must be a plan that is consistent with the conditions of the sponsors.
The organizing committee shall choose approximately three entries to receive a combined funding of ¥1.500.000 (an average of ¥500,000 per entry).
This funding is intended to cover artwork production costs, travel expenses, living expenses, fees associated with renting a venue for production and costs of removing the piece from the exhibition venue.
Each applicant can only submit one proposal for a sponsored piece.
