The Asia Pacific Breweries (APB) Foundation Signature Art Prize is a triennial celebration of the best in contemporary art from Asia Pacific and Central Asia. Inaugurated by the APB Foundation and the Singapore Art Museum in 2008, it recognises the most outstanding examples of contemporary art produced in the preceding three years. This year, the fourth edition of the prize features 113 nominated works, put forward for consideration by 38 nominators from 46 different countries, territories and regions, with Central Asia being included for the first time. An international jury selected 15 finalists from the list of nominated works, which are included in the exhibition, and from which four prize winners are chosen. The works foreground new material and conceptual trajectories in contemporary art-making, and speak to the myriad social, historical and cultural complexities of Asia today. This catalogue features an introductory essay, as well as personal statements from the finalist artists and nominators.
