Intro
The LOEWE FOUNDATION is proud to unveil the 29 artists who have been shortlisted for the Craft Prize 2019. The finalists were recognized for their fundamentally important contributions to the development of contemporary craft, with the submitted works presenting a diverse spectrum of techniques, media and modes of expression. 29 works have been selected as Finalists by the Experts Panel. These works will take part of the LOEWE Craft Prize 2019 exhibition that will travel to Tokyo.

This year, over 2,500 submissions from over 100 countries (an increase of 44 percent) were reviewed by a panel of nine experts, who convened in Madrid for two days to identify the most outstanding works in terms of technical accomplishment, innovation, and artistic vision. As always the finalists hail from far reaches of the globe, although there is a notable quota of 10 representing Japan, eight are UK-based and there are four from Korea.

A jury composed of 11 leading figures from the world of design, architecture, journalism, criticism, and museum curatorship, including Anderson and also Jennifer Lee, winner of last year’s prize, will select the winner from the shortlist.

Each year the announcement of the winner takes place in a different city. Last year’s ceremony took place at London’s Design Museum and for the inaugural year, the announcement and exhibition took place in Loewe’s home city of Madrid. This year the jury will travel to Tokyo and the prize of 50,000 euros will be presented to the winner on 25 June at the opening of the Loewe Craft Prize 2019 exhibition, which is being held at Isamu Noguchi’s indoor stone garden Heaven at the Sogetsu Kaikan in Tokyo – a suitably tranquil setting in which to enjoy the rich diversity of hand-hewn works on display.
