The Prudential Eye Awards returns in 2016, featuring 15 artists who an eminent panel of Judges believe have the potential to go on and develop significant careers on the international art world stage.
The Prudential Eye Awards were launched in 2014 by the Prudential Eye Programme, a partnership between Parallel Contemporary Art, Saatchi Gallery and Prudential. The inaugural awards were staged on 18 January 2014 at Suntec City, Singapore. The annual awards focus on emerging artists from across Greater Asia and highlight the breadth, range and diversity of the works being made by emerging Asian artists. In partnership with the Saatchi Gallery they enable the work of these artists to reach audiences and receive international exposure.
The second edition of the Prudential Eye Awards was held in Singapore on 20 January 2015, at Marina Bay Sands and the Japanese collective Chim↑Pom were awarded the Overall Best Emerging Artist prize, winning USD$50,000 and a solo show at Saatchi Gallery, London.
