In Japan, visitors to exhibitions will often be asked to fill out a simple form, if they want, requesting which work in the show was their favorite, and why. KIWA did this, too. Below are the results of the 6 th KIWA Exhibition held in the Kyoto City Museum March/April, 2011, to which over 1,200 visitors came.
The Popularity Poll is truly where we can learn what the public likes. This is one aspect KIWA has always been interested in showing thru our exhibitions. This time we introduce only the top 17 artists whose works received the most votes; 8 of them had also won prizes. Tastes differ, and our exhibitions convincingly reveal this. The judging results of so many of the other major exhibitions do not clearly reflect society’s likes or dislikes, but only, usually, one individual’s tastes, an “expert” who alone cannot possibility know everything that the public is currently thinking about with regards to art. How many times have you gone to an exhibition and been disappointed in the judge’s choices? They are his/her tastes, not the public’s.
Here is the poll. You may disagree with some of the results. I do. But I don’t represent the public, only my own, perhaps narrow view of print art.
President of KIWA,
You can see the 6th KIWA exhibition’s ARTIST POPULARITY POLL in the KIWA’s website!
