Sovereign Asian Art Prize Unveils Exhibition: 20 Years of Contemporary Art

Sovereign Art Foundation 20th Anniversary

The Sovereign Art Foundation (SAF) has announced the 30 artists shortlisted for The 2024 Sovereign Asian Art Prize, marking the award's 20th anniversary as Asia’s most coveted contemporary art honour.

In addition to providing artists with international recognition and generous financial prizes, The Prize is a significant charitable endeavour, raising substantial funds to support disadvantaged children through the auctioning of finalists’ artworks.

Selected from 362 entries by 171 artists nominated by 55 independent professionals, the finalists represent 15 countries and regions across Asia-Pacific, with Hong Kong leading with 9 shortlisted artists. Notably, nearly two-thirds of the shortlisted artists are women, a first for the Prize.

The 30 finalists’ artworks will be showcased and open for voting, both in person and online, during a free public exhibition at H Queen's building in Central, from May 8 to 16. Younger visitors can engage with the exhibition's themes through a special self-guided activity developed by SAF’s experienced art therapists and the exhibition’s organizers, fostering an interest in the arts in the next generation.

Selected artworks will be available for purchase at the exhibition on a first-come-first-served basis. The remaining works, except the Grand Prize winner, will be auctioned at an exclusive Gala Dinner at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong on May 17 following the exhibition, with proceeds split evenly between the artists and SAF’s charity programs.
