The word "criterium" comes from the Latin "criterion," which refers to a standard. The goal of ATM's Criterium series is to raise awareness about young artists currently active on the domestic scene. Many inquiries about the series are made from people both in Japan and overseas, making it serve as an important opportunity for such young artists. There is also a high level of interest from local companies and art fans, whose support helps to keep the program going.
