K11 Artist Prize (International)

K11 Art Foundation has announced the launch of a new contemporary art prize, the K11 Artist Prize, an initiative aimed at providing emerging Asian artists with a significant platform for recognition and advancement. The awarded artist will not only gain critical exposure through an exhibition, but will also receive mentorship from members of the K11 Art Foundation International Council, including Chairperson Alia Al-Senussi and Founding Members A4 Arts Foundation, Basma Al Sulaiman, Sarah Arison, Eugenio Re Rebaudengo, Olga Re Rebaudengo and Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. This mentorship is complemented by participation in a range of K11 Art Foundation projects, including a two-month residency opportunity at the K11 art village in Wuhan, China. Practising artists and artist collectives of Asian or ethnic Asian heritage are eligible with no restrictions based on gender, age, artistic discipline or current place of residence or work.
Applications close 7 February 2024; learn more and apply.
