The Sovereign Art Foundation
International

The Sovereign Art Foundation runs regional art prizes that promote contemporary artists while raising funds to support expressive arts programs for children. Their supporters enjoy a remarkable opportunity to engage with the art world while supporting a worthwhile cause, and participating artists receive exhibitions, cash awards and access to a global audience.

There are annual awards for students that celebrate the importance of art in the education system and recognize the quality of artworks produced by secondary-school students across the world.

The first Students Prize was established in 2012 in Hong Kong, followed by additional Students Prizes in Bahrain, Gibraltar, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, London, Malta, Mauritius, Portugal and Singapore.

The Sovereign Art Foundation was established in 2003 by Howard Bilton and Tiffany Pinkstone, who shared a vision of promoting contemporary Asian art in Hong Kong. By launching The Sovereign Asian Art Prize, they recognized an opportunity not only to celebrate artists, but to raise funds for programs that use art to make a difference. Over twenty years later, the Foundation has raised over $11 million USD and supported the wellbeing of thousands of children using the power of expressive arts.

Meanwhile, meaningless renovations have been carried out in old public housing estates but no improvements have been made on facilities that that are really in need. (more…)

  • Michael Radford: CRASH

    Edition Taube
    International

    In Michael Radford’s first artists’ book, we see shattered supercar bodies – forming a dialogue between consumer accidents and human desire, questioning these objects and their role in enabling petrol masculinity. The seductive high-gloss compositions draw us in, seen through the lens of automotive sexiness and the capitalist ideological machine, cannoned by the image. (more…)

    Albertina
    Wien, Austria

    Gregory Crewdson (*1962, Brooklyn) is one of the world’s most renowned photographers. Since the mid-1980s, Crewdson has been using the backdrop of small American towns and film sets to create, like a director, technically brilliant and colourfully seductive photographs that focus on human isolation and the abysses of society. The enigmatic scenes self-reflexively raise questions about the boundary between fact and fiction but can also be related to socio-political developments. (more…)
