Inaugurated in 2008 by the Asia Pacific Breweries (APB) Foundation and the Singapore Art Museum, the triennial APB Foundation Signature Art Prize returns for its fourth edition in 2018. Recognising outstanding examples of contemporary art from both emerging and established artists over the previous three years, the prize puts the spotlight on the most compelling, cogent and complex works of art from the Asia-Pacific rim to the region of Central Asia.
For the 2018 edition, 113 artworks from 46 countries and territories across Asia Pacific and Central Asia are nominated for the Prize, of which five are from Singapore. These are works by artists Jack Tan, Wei Leng Tay, Lina Adam, Shubigi Rao and Choy Ka Fai.
The APB Foundation Signature Art Prize is worth SGD 100,000, with SGD 60,000 awarded to the Grand Prize winner and SGD 15,000 each to two Jurors’ Choice Award winners. A People’s Choice Award of SGD 10,000 will also be offered to the work that receives the highest number of public votes on-site.
The 15 finalists of the 2018 installment will be announced by early 2018, and the APB Foundation Signature Art Prize finalist exhibition will take place from 25 May to 2 September 2018 at the National Museum of Singapore, venue partner for the Prize.
