SUPPORT FOR ACTIVITIES OVERSEAS
The objective of the Tokyo Contemporary Art Award (TCAA) is to encourage the artists receiving this award to make even greater strides, including activities overseas, through several years of continuous support.
In the second year after receiving the award, funding is provided for overseas activities. During their work overseas, award winners carry out research and other activities for the exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo the following year and to contribute to their future creative work.
Shitamichi Motoyuki, one of the first recipients of this award, traveled to China and Italy. Kazama Sachiko, the other recipient, had planned to travel to Germany in March, 2020, but had to cancel her plans due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
