Affordable Art Fair’s Young Talent Programme 2015, in collaboration with ION Art, provides a significant platform for talented young artists between the ages of 18 and 35 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 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. The programme is open to artists 18 – 35 years old in 2015, who are born/resident in South East Asia and who do not have gallery representation.
Selected artists win an opportunity to exhibit their works at the Affordable Art Fair in November 2015. Of these, two to three artists will win the coveted chance of a solo exhibition provided by ION Art in 2016. The winning artists will work with our programme curator, allowing them a year to develop their practice.
Cost: Free Open call
