The Asia Art Award was designed to discover and cultivate the talents of young Asian artists and to provide them with a system that will support the international promotion and circulation of their art. This art competition aims to re-establish the status of Asian contemporary art and build the foundation for positioning Asian art professionals as art leaders of the future. Utilizing mass media, online, publication, etc., multi-faceted efforts will be made in order to promote better, active communication with the general public.

50 to 100 eminent international art leaders will be invited to form the strongest human network infrastructure for contemporary art at our forum. The new social paradigm of 21st century society that developed from the advancement of digital technology and global capitalism instigated various changes and had a great influence on contemporary art. And this paradigm demands new aesthetic approaches and dialogues in response to these changes in global politics, economics and culture. What is more, as Asia becomes the new center of culture, art and philosophy, a leveled view of contemporary art is presented.
