Jury selects Nissan Art Award 2013 finalists
The first round jury for the Nissan Art Award 2013 met in Venice, Italy at the end of May 2013. Five jurors, globally active art experts, considered the nominations and selected eight artists as finalists. The several dozen artists under consideration had previously been nominated by a separate candidate nomination committee comprising five curators and art critics.
The eight artists selected as finalists will exhibit their new work at BankART Studio NYK in Yokohama City in September. The jury will then meet again for a final round to decide the winner of the Nissan Art Award 2013 grand prize.
