Young Talent Programme
The Young Talent Programme is a significant platform for young artists to be spotted by galleries and art institutions, and be introduced to the art-loving public. Our objective is to identify young talents early, providing guidance and commentary on their artistic development.
The Programme creates an opportunity for emerging artists to build a strong CV and experience in the art industry and to be in a programme which provides a focal point for contemporary art dealers and their collectors to access fresh artists’ works from the region.
Selected artists win an opportunity to exhibit their works at Affordable Art Fair in November 2012. Of these, two or three artists will win the coveted chance of a solo exhibition provided by ION Art. The winning artists will work with our programme curator, allowing them a year to develop their practice.
The 2012 Advisory Commitee of trusted and recognized supporters of the visual arts in Singapore comprises Dr Charles Merewether, Benjamin Hampe, Camilla Hewitson, Wendy Cheong and programme curator Seah Tzi Yan.
The programme is open to artists 18 – 30 years old in 2012, who are born/resident in South East Asia, and who do not have gallery representation.
