Ever since its opening in 2001, Tokyo Wonder Site has undertaken a wide range of programs to support and foster young artists. One such program, TWS-Emerging, is associated with the open call exhibition, Tokyo Wonder Wall, which has been providing talented young artists with a gateway to success. Each year, 100 artists are selected from approximately 1000 applicants, and their works are displayed at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo. Furthermore, the prize winners have their own exhibition at the public spaces in the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. TWS-Emerging offers the opportunity for those selected artists to take part in another exhibition at Tokyo Wonder Site. We have introduced about 200 artists so far. For this year, 19 young artists were chosen to show their works at TWS Shibuya. They are also invited to participate in a number of programs at TWS as well as residency programs conducted in association with overseas residencies under TWS's international exchange programs.
