アルテス・ムンディ賞 Artes Mundi

Artes Mundi (Latin: arts of the world) is an international biennial contemporary art exhibition and prize, held in Wales and organised by a non-profit arts charity of the same name. Since 2003 the Artes Mundi art prize has been held every two years at the National Museum Cardiff. The prize is the biggest art prize in the United Kingdom with £40,000 for each year’s winner. Though the prize has included artists who use traditional media, like paint, this is usually only part of their practice, with the focus being very much on conceptual approaches. Though the exhibition takes place in Cardiff, the focus is on international artists. In 2014/15 Artes Mundi 6 expanded beyond the National Museum and shared the exhibition of shortlisted works with Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff, and Turner House Gallery, Penarth.小泉明郎
