If you are a regular visitor, you will know how much I love art, not only as decoration in your home but also as an incredibly important form of expression and opinion. South Africa has such a wealth of creative talent, and from all of you young artists out there I would like to know:
What would you do with $100k to invest in your artwork?
The deadline has been extended to midnight 2 October for the fourth Future Generation Art Prize.
The pioneering Future Generation Art Prize established by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in 2009 is a worldwide contemporary art prize created to discover, recognise and give long-term support to a future generation of artists. Judged by a distinguished jury, The Prize aims to make a major contribution to the careers of younger artists involved in the dynamic cultural development of societies in transition, many of whom have found it difficult to get their voices heard.
Open to all artists up to the age of 35 of all backgrounds, working in any medium, anywhere in the world. This year’s winner will win a prize of US$100,000 and an international presentation at the Venice Biennale. In addition US$ 20,000 will be awarded to up to five Special Prize winners.
65 artists have been showcased in past Future Generation Art Prizes from all continents of the world and over 30 countries, including Angola, Argentina, Austria, Canada, Chechen Republic Russia, Chile, China, Cuba, France, Germany, Iran, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Mexico, Netherlands, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, UK, USA and Zimbabwe. Past Main Prize winners have been Cinthia Marcelle, Brazil; Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, UK; Nástio Mosquito, Angola and Carlos Motta, Colombia.
“Art, freedom and creativity will change society faster than politics,”
-Victor Pinchuck, Founder of the the Future Generation Art Prize
