Opening Ceremony – Sunny Art Prize Exhibition 2018

Tickets for the opening ceremony on September 4th are available on the Sunny Art Prize 2018 - Opening Night Ticket

PRESS  RELEASE 

As one of the most inclusive and diverse open submission prizes in London, the Sunny Art Prize offers artists the chance to engage with contemporary issues on an international level. The new 2018 edition of the Sunny Art Prize seeks to broaden debates surrounding art and its relevance to the age we live in to an international audience.

Contemporary and cutting-edge paintings, sculptures, installations, video art, photography, and more are some of the first in a series of group exhibitions that aims to raise awareness of themes encompassing climate change, the current international debate regarding immigration and refugees, our perception of identity (both our own and the identity of the society we live in), the spectacle of news media communications, sexuality, gender, race, and queer culture, among others. We encourage visitors to pay special attention to the work of each artist and to the unique ways in which they allowed for a transnational gathering of ideas.

The artworks exhibited in this edition of the Prize will provide audiences with the chance to reflect on the ways in which we relate to these issues, what we are doing to tackle them, and how an international debate offering various opinions on such themes can help us understand the global context in which we live.
