SINGAPORE 2018 YOUNG TALENT PROGRAMME
Show your work at the Affordable Art Fair and win a solo exhibition at ION Art Gallery
The Affordable Art Fair invites applications from young artists to submit their works for exhibition under the Young Talent Programme 2018, in collaboration with ION Art and supported by Hotel Jen.
The Young Talent Programme provides a platform for talented young artists to be spotted by galleries and art institutions, as well as to be introduced to the art-loving public. Our objective is to identify young talent and to provide guidance and commentary on their artistic development. As well as exhibiting artworks at the Affordable Art Fair 2018, the programme culminates in a three-week curated solo exhibition supported by ION Art for two or three of the awarded young artists in 2019, after working closely with the Programme Curator, Ms. Seah Tzi-Yan for a 10-month period. These solo shows will take place simultaneously, creating a visual dialogue for the artists and audience.
Six to eight artists will be selected from the applications we receive to exhibit at the Affordable Art Fair Singapore 2018 autumn edition. Of these, up to three awarded artists will be given the opportunity to showcase their works at the Winners’ Solo Exhibitions at ION Art Gallery, ION Orchard in August / September 2019. The deadline for applications is 14 September 2018.
– Artists must be aged 18 – 35 years old in 2018. Anyone who turns 36 before 14 September 2018 will not be eligible.
– Applicants must have been born in or be resident in Southeast Asia.
– Artists should not have gallery representation or plans for proposed solo exhibitions at the time of application, and up until 1 November 2018.
– Winners of the Affordable Art Fair’s previous Young Talent Programmes are not eligible to apply.
