    With three entry bases in Tokyo, New York, and Paris, Art Olympia is a public art contest open to artists from all over the world with the goal of discovering talents and supporting their activities. Established as a biennale, the contest is to be held every two years.

    As its first contest, Art Olympia 2015 seeks two-dimensional artworks. The judging will be conducted by a panel of judges from both in and outside of Japan using a fair point system. Also, Art Olympia aims to promote world’s cultural exchanges through art.

    Art Olympia embodies the following three concepts:

    • Connect - Art Olympia would like to establish a worldwide hub of art and culture which would meet and connect domestic artists to international artists.

    • Discover - Art Olympia will collect artworks from all over the world and invite domestic and foreign art experts as jurors. A variety of jurors from different cultural and historical backgrounds will broaden the possibility of recognizing talented artists.

    • Create - Art Olympia aims to encourage and inspire artists creating the next generation of art and a new aesthetic sense of beauty. The exchange of culture through Art Olympia will stimulate artists to grow beyond their borders.
