The K11 Art Foundation announces the formation of the K11 Art Foundation International Council, which reflects K11 Art Foundation’s mission to champion and support emerging Asian contemporary artists.

The Council is led by Dr. Alia Al-Senussi, a prominent cultural strategist, patron and academic, and comprises influential art collectors and experts in their fields. Collectively they will draw on their expertise, experience, and network as international key opinion leaders in the cultural sphere to support and promote exceptional artistic practices that challenge boundaries, inspire innovation, and contribute to the future of contemporary art.

Committed to promoting dialogue and collaborations that transcend borders, the Council will convene during significant art world moments and landmark cultural events, and propose initiatives to foster a global art community where diverse perspectives converge and inspire one another.

The first project spearheaded by the K11 Art Foundation International Council is the K11 Artist Prize, which aims to provide emerging Asian artists with a significant platform for recognition and professional advancement on the international art scene. The artist selected for the K11 Artist Prize 2024 will receive mentorship from the Council’s members, in addition to participating in an exhibition, artist-in-residence programme, and other projects.
