Art Basel and BMW have announced the shortlist for the latest edition of the BMW Art Journey.
From among the artists showing in the Discoveries sector at Art Basel Hong Kong, the jury selected Ali Kazim (Jhaveri Contemporary, Mumbai), Zac Langdon-Pole (Michael Lett, Auckland) and Gala Porras-Kim (Commonwealth and Council, Los Angeles). Each has the chance to win a journey 'to almost anywhere in the world – to research, to network, to envision and create new work'.
The three artists are now invited to submit a proposal for their 'very own personal journey', with the winner to be announced in early summer 2018. In collaboration with the winning artist, the journey will be documented and shared with the public through publications, online and social media.
The jury for the BMW Art Journey includes Richard Armstrong, Director, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation, New York; Claire Hsu, Director, Asia Art Archive, Hong Kong; Bose Krishnamachari, President, Kochi-Muziris Biennale, India; Matthias Mühling, Director, Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus and Kunstbau, Munich; and Pauline J. Yao, Curator Visual Art M+, Hong Kong.
