Sovereign Art Foundation: 11 Years of Art in Asia Exhibition

11 January 2016 - 12 March 2016

The Sovereign Art Foundation (SAF) is a charity that raises money to help disadvantaged children across Asia using the arts as rehabilitation, education and therapy. SAF was established in 2003 with a well-defined twin focus: to bring the proven benefits of art to underprivileged children in the region and to recognize the growing wealth if contemporary art talent in the Asia Pacific Region.

Annually, SAF runs an annual art prize that showcases 30 finalists from around the Asian region. The first prize winner receives US$30,000 and the remaining 29 finalists are auctioned to raise money for the children ‘s workshops around the region. Over the past decade, the Sovereign Asian Art Prize in particular has grown substantially in stature and prestige. It is now recognized as the most established and prestigious award for contemporary art in the Asia-Pacific region.
