TAIKOO LI SANLITUN YOUNG ARTIST AWARD
ABOUT THE AWARD
Taikoo Li Sanlitun Young Artists Award 2015 is a project brought to you by SURGE Art, China’s leading platform for discovering emerging artists, and sponsored by Taikoo Li Sanlitun, Beijing’s fashion and culture hub. Together, SURGE Art and Taikoo Li Sanlitun are working to showcase the best of China’s up-and-coming young talent.
TKL-YAA will be searching for and accepting applications from eligible candidates until December 9th 2014, before narrowing this selection down to 12 finalists. These finalists will have the opportunity to display their works at an exhibition at The Orange in Taikoo Li Sanlitun South between January 9th and January 19th, 2015.
The exhibition will culminate in the selection of two winners: one to be chosen by a panel of judges including famous artists, heads of galleries, and curators; the second to be chosen by the public via online voting throughout the exhibition.
These two winners will win a semester at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) Art & Design in Sydney, Australia. Tuition, accommodation and basic living costs will all be covered. Read more about prizes below.
Through this award, SURGE Art and Taikoo Li aim to promote and support not only the discovery of talented, young artists but also the sphere of Chinese contemporary art as a whole, allowing the audience to engage with a world too often out of reach.
The University of New South Wales is a world-class university seven kilometers from the center of Sydney, Australia. The two winners of this year’s Taikoo Li Sanlitun Young Artists Award will have the extraordinary opportunity to travel to Sydney and be enrolled in UNSW Art & Design for one semester, from late February 2015 to early June 2015. UNSW is globally renowned for its innovative teaching, cutting-edge research, state-of-the-art facilities, quality of student life, and diversity of the student population.
The two artists will join in on university classes based on interest area and class availability, as well as receive invitations to various openings, floor talks, workshops, conference talks, special lectures, student exhibitions, and more throughout the semester.
Beyond the classroom, the two winners are free to interact with Australia’s emerging young artists and join on-campus organizations and student groups to widen their horizons. They have an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be immersed in Western art & culture, and seek influence in an environment completely different from the one they currently know.
Not only will the winners gain valuable connections and experience from such a semester abroad, but they will also learn about the art world on a global scale, solidifying their foundation and appreciation for universal art.
