IMPART Awards 2017 is a new initiative that supports young visual artists and curators locally. Organised by Art Outreach Singapore, IMPART Awards seeks to motivate inspiring artists and curators in establishing a career.
Applications are now closed however, this competition was a open call to all Singaporean citizens and Singaporean Permanent Residents between the ages 18-35 years. Made up of two parts, the IMPART Visual Artist Award required a submision of original artworks for assessment, while the IMPART Curator Award will be accessed based on a portfolio of exhibition proposals, public programmes, workshops among others.
By providing art residencies and mentoring programmes, it exposes them to the work of other art practitioners, approaches and cultures. In turn, these outstanding individuals will make significant contributions to the development of Singapore's vibrant art scene.
All shortlisted visual artists and curators will be notified by 31 August 2017 and winners will be announced at the Gala Fundraising Dinner in Singapore on the 9 September 2017.
