Quote:
Promoted virally, attendance more than doubled the artist’s modest expectations for the exhibition’s nine-day-run, and in November the project garnered Koizumi the inaugural Japanese Contemporary Art Transparency Prize for facilitating “debate about actual censorship, corruption, nepotism, discrimination or stimulates freedom of curatorial practice in the local art world”(1).
