StateoftheART is delighted to present a national open call for artists to apply to the 3rd edition of the StateoftheART Gallery Award, a visual arts prize aimed at uncovering emerging South African talent. Entry is open to all artists who are permanently resident in South Africa, aged 18 to 35, and who have not held a solo exhibition with a commercial gallery.
The theme for 2020 is “On The Brink: Visualising Climate Change” and entrants are required to submit three artworks that explore this theme in relation to their own lives; to create work to inspire and encourage societal change within their community – and within the broader South African context.
The top 10 Finalists will participate in a group exhibition in Cape Town at StateoftheART Gallery in September 2020, when the overall winner will be announced. The winner receives a R20 000 cash prize and a solo exhibition with StateoftheART in 2021.
