StateoftheART is delighted to announce the launch of the StateoftheART Gallery Award, a visual arts prize aimed at uncovering emerging South African talent. Entry is open to all artists who are permanent residents of South Africa, aged 18 years and older, and who have not yet had a solo exhibition with a commercial gallery.
Local judges will choose finalists whose work will go on show in a group exhibition at our Cape Town gallery in September 2018 for a final round of judging.
All shortlisted artists will have the opportunity to join StateoftheART as one of our featured artists. The overall winner of the StateoftheART Gallery Award will be announced before the conclusion of the Group Finalist’s Exhibition and receive a R10 000 cash prize and solo exhibition.
