2017 New Contemporaries SD Art Prize Nominated Artists at basileIE + CMCuratorial
The 2017 emerging SD Art Prize artists will be announced at the end of the City College exhibition. Those two artist from this exhibition will be chosen to receive this the 2017 SD Art Prize and they will in turn choose two established artists to mentor them and to be co-exhibitor at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library in the spring of 2017. Additionally there will be an extra cash prize for the people’s choice from this exhibition.
Emerging artist definition: artist who are emerging with new, fresh ideas. This is not about the age of the artists or the exposure they have had, but what art they are creating now and in the past three to five years. We think of these artists as emerging from the darkness into the light of the public view.
