2019 Jury Members
The seven jury members of the main contest of our international exhibition are renowned professionals and scholars who are are actively involved in the contemporary ceramics field: artists, curators, managers, or academic figures. The jury will first evaluate the online applications to select the initial candidates (around 100 selected artists). Then, in the fall, will select the winning works for the international exhibition. The jury may also provide critical comments to the public and media regarding the selections. The jury’s decisions are usually final and, given the nature of this event, contesations cannot be accepted.
