Sovereign Asian Art Prize 2018: Shortlisted Finalists Exhibition


  • HART Hall at H Queen’s, G/F 80 Queen's Road Central Central, Hong Kong Island Hong Kong (map)
Human Archive Project (borders are a human construction), 2017, Nicola Anthony, has been shortlisted for The 2018 Sovereign Asian Art Prize.

The Sovereign Asian Art Prize is recognised as the most prestigious prize in its field and region, and will hold an auction, exhibition and gala dinner this April. 

Held annually, the Sovereign Asian Art Prize invites mid-career contemporary artists - nominated by a carefully selected board of independent art experts from the region - to enter up to three artworks. Entries are then shortlisted by a small judging panel consisting of world-class art specialists, who select the best 30 artworks to be exhibited in a prominent public space in Hong Kong, where the pieces are judged a second time, in person.

The Grand Prize winner will be revealed at the annual sell-out Gala Dinner in Hong Kong. All artworks are then auctioned to the public - with the exception of the winning entry, which becomes the property of the Foundation and is used to further its charitable aims.

Attend the gala dinner on 11th May: Tickets and tables are on sale now and interested parties may email art@sovereignartfoundation.com for more information

More about the Sovereign Art Foundation: The Sovereign Art Foundation (SAF) was established in 2003 with a well-defined twin focus: to recognise the growing wealth of contemporary art talent in Asia, and bring the proven benefits of expressive arts to underprivileged children. "The beauty of our model is that we are able to achieve both goals in an eminently sustainable way. The Sovereign Asian Art Prize, now recognised as the most prestigious prize in its field and region, raises funds by auctioning those artworks that reach the final stage of the competition. The proceeds are then shared equally between the artists and the Foundation, to be used for our charitable projects across Asia."

Venue: HART Hall at H Queen’s, G/F 80 Queen’s Road Central, Hong Kong

Opening Reception 26 April 2018
