GEISAI is comming back! Sunday, April 30, 2023!
We are holding GEISAI #22 on April 30, 2023. As with the previous event, we will be accepting participants under the age of 30. Jurors will select the artists who will each receive a cash prize and be invited to hold an exhibition at a small gallery Kaikai Kiki operates in Nakano.
On the same day, we are launching a new GEISAI event. Called GEISAI Classic, it will be an experimental event limited to those 30 and over. We don’t have the details yet, but since we are booking a large event venue and making significant efforts to attract many participants and visitors for GEISAI already, I thought it would be logical to also provide an opportunity for those 30 and over to present their works on the occasion. For this portion of the event, there won’t be a jury and its purpose will only be the presentation of artworks.
I can anticipate various sorts of complaints we might hear, but if this event isn’t to your liking there are many other public exhibitions and competitions to apply to. There’s no reason you should participate in this one if it doesn’t suit you to begin with.
Distribution of Commemorative NFTs
At the GEISAI#22 event on April 30 at Tokyo Big Sight, we are distributing GEISAI 2023 Official NFT. By registering on site, you will receive 1 - 30 GEISAI 2023 Official NFT(s) at random by airdrop at a later date.
Please come visit GEISAI, a gateway for artists in Japan, and enjoy the works for the promising artists!

Visitor Benefit: Trading Cards
On the day of the event, we will be distributing promotional cards for Takashi Murakami's new project, Trading Cards, on site at the GEISAI#22 venue. Distribution will be limited to one card per person.
