The 9th Hiroshima Art Prize Doris Salcedo|
July 19-October 13, 2014
The Hiroshima Art Prize was established by the City of Hiroshima to recognize the achievements of artists who spread the “Spirit of Hiroshima,” which seeks everlasting world peace, and aim to appeal to a wider world through contemporary art. Ms. Doris Salcedo has been selected as the winner of the 9th Hiroshima Art Prize. She is an artist who has consistently expressed her view that art has the potential power of strong resistance to the widespread violence and discrimination in the world. She will present two large-scale installations that completely transform spaces into places of mourning for the dead, quietly recognizing the tragedy of Hiroshima, an incident of violence unprecedented in human history, and incorporating the hope of rebirth.
