SUNNY ART PRIZE 2022

LONDON GROUP EXHIBITION

The Sunny Art Prize is sponsored by the Art Council England and has established itself as one of the UK’s most prestigious international art competitions. The scope of this contemporary art prize is about sourcing the most talented artists from all over the world, both established and emerging ones, who produce ground-breaking and innovative artworks. We select artists who work with a wide range of media, making the art prize a varied and stimulating global platform to engage with critical contemporary issues and topics. The art competition is then open to everyone, regardless of location or preferred medium and theme.

Every year, we shortlist 30 artists, among whom we select three winners. All the shortlisted artists have the opportunity to exhibit their work at the Sunny Art Centre, London, a prestigious art institution with an extraordinary collection of old masters and artworks by leading contemporary artists. In addition, the winners, alongside seven other artists chosen from the shortlist, have the chance to exhibit their work with our partnering galleries in China. The exhibiting galleries are located in cities across China, such as Beijing and Shanghai, and are amongst the leading art institutions in the Asian art market.

This art contest also gives the art prize-winners the chance to experience a one-month
artist residency in China. The Artist Residency Programme is organised in collaboration with established Chinese art institutions, and it provides the opportunity to engage with historically and culturally rich places in China.

The Sunny Art Prize 2021 | London Exhibition opens on February 21st 2022  and will be on view until March 21st 2022. Thirty shortlisted artists from around the world have been selected to show their work in an exclusive exhibition of this yearly initiative. 

 

 Through painting, sculpture, ceramics, video art, 3D work, and installations, our shortlisted artists are engaging with themes such as colonialism, the current climate emergency and sharp extinction rates in the natural world, war and conflict, housing crises, mental health, identity, and consumerism. Therefore, the London exhibition will provide audiences with a chance to think about how our societies and individual lifestyles contribute to the solution, or exacerbation, of the issues at hand.

The Sunny Art Prize is a yearly initiative providing artists from all over the world with the chance to publicly engage with themes and issues of a global scale. With the beginning of a new millennium, the highest hopes for, and achievements in, social, political, and economic greatness have been at the forefront of human life. At the same time, as we approach the second decade of this new century, people all over the world have begun to acknowledge the costs that derive from such greatness.
