AN EXCITING PLATFORM FOR YOUNG MALAYSIAN ARTISTS
Penang Art District is proud to present a group exhibition featuring artworks by the Top 20 Finalists of the Spotlight art competition. The exhibition will run from 3 November 2018 to 2 December 2018. The exhibition was officiated by YB Tuan Muhammad Bakhtiar bin Wan Chik, the Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture of Malaysia.
Out of the Top 20 Finalists selected by a panel of judges, consisting of artists, art collectors, an art educator and art space owner, the Grand Prize winner will go home with RM5,000 cash and a solo exhibition at Hin Bus Depot supported by Penang Art District. The Grand Prize winner, Yap Ley Min, will be given the opportunity to work with a mentor to help her through the journey of developing the solo exhibition for January 2019.
The Spotlight art competition is part of the Penang Art District’s role in building a supportive environment and ecosystem that allow artists to come together to explore, experiment and evolve. With curated programmes that focus on providing learning opportunities for young practitioners and connecting them and their works globally through creative exchange, the art district becomes an important platform for artists who wish to expand their creative career.
