The Mingei gallery warmly thanks the National Museum of Asian Arts – Guimet, its president Ms. Sophie Makariou and the entire museum team where the 11finalist works are exhibited until May 3rd, 2021.
Eleven works have been selected and will be exhibited at the Musée national des arts asiatiques – Guimet from October 21st through May 3rd 2021.
Galerie Mingei has been championing the Japanese wickerwork and bamboo arts for ten years, and has established itself as the first and virtually only European gallery with this area of specialty.
Promoting the continued and enduring recognition of this art and encouraging contemporary creation are Galerie Mingei’s main objectives as it sets out to award an annual prize. The competition for this prize is open to all Japanese artists regardless of age, and particularly to those who use bamboo as their medium. Artists may also enter the competition as many times as they wish.
