Saeborg “I WAS MADE FOR LOVING YOU” / TSUDA Michiko “Life is Delaying”

Tokyo Contemporary Art Award 2022-2024 Exhibition

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Tokyo Arts and Space (TOKAS) established the Tokyo Contemporary Art Award (TCAA) in 2018 as a contemporary art prize for mid-career artists. Each year two artists or groups are selected, and in the final year of a multi-year program of support, award exhibitions are held at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo.

These exhibitions featuring Saeborg and TSUDA Michiko, winners of the fourth TCAA, are titled “I WAS MADE FOR LOVING YOU” and “Life is Delaying” respectively. While the two adjacent exhibitions are separate presentations that differ significantly in terms of their concerns and creative approach, they have a commonality in that viewers’ actions in the galleries become part of the work. In viewing these works they also face themselves, and this leads to examination of relationships with others, including animals, and of roles that society expects.
