Emerging talent given platform at Art Next ExpoLocal | 15 Mar 2019 4:55 pm
An art fair dedicated to emerging and independent artists from around the world is inviting artists to submit their works by April 15.
The third edition of Art Next Expo will be held between November 1 and 4 in PMQ in Central.
Artists whose works are selected by the judging panel over two rounds will be invited to Hong Kong to join the expo to showcase their works to collectors and art lovers. They will also be eligible for the Art Next International Awards with prizes including cash prizes and artist-in-residence program at the Taipei Artist Village, the organizer said.
Art Next, formerly known as New Art Wave, was established in 2015 with an aim to provide a platform for emerging artists from around the world to showcase their talents to art communities, including art collectors, critics, scholars and art lovers, in Hong Kong and in the region.
It also gives collectors an opportunity to access top quality works at affordable prices – a much desired alternative for new collectors who appreciate lower barriers to entry, as well as experienced collectors who seek new talent with market potential.
Art Next Expo is supported by art organizations including Asia Society, Hong Kong Baptist University Visual Arts Institute, Sun Museum, Taipei Artist Village, Hong Kong Arts Center.
