LONDON – 17 November 2022 – Phillips is proud to partner with The Sovereign Art Foundation (SAF) this December to present the third edition of the The Sovereign Art Foundation Students Prize, London. Established in 2012, The Sovereign Art Foundation (SAF) Students Prize is an annual award designed to celebrate the importance of art in the education system and recognise the quality of artworks produced by secondary school students citywide. As official venue partner of The Sovereign Art Foundation (SAF) Students Prize, Phillips will host the 20 shortlisted artworks in a Finalists’ Exhibition at Phillips London headquarters at 30 Berkeley Square, where it will run alongside Phillips’ New Now auction preview from 1 – 8 December 2022.
Tamila Kerimova, Director, Senior Specialist, 20th Century & Contemporary Art, Phillips, said: “Phillips is delighted to partner with The Sovereign Art Foundation and honoured to host the London Students Prize Finalists’ exhibition for the third year in a row. The exhibition will run alongside our New Now auction which will feature a broad spectrum of cutting-edge contemporary works from both blue chip and emerging artists alike. The aim of our ongoing partnership with The Sovereign Art Foundation is to celebrate the importance of art in education and to support them in their endeavours to champion young artists. At Phillips, our goal is to discover and showcase exceptional works of art and part of that is recognising the tremendous significance and role we all must play in encouraging and supporting the next generation of artists as much as possible. As we saw in the exhibition last year, the students entering the competition produce the most extraordinary works of art, and their talents should be recognised and celebrated so they feel confident to continue to nurture their creativity. We look forward to welcoming visitors to view the Students Prize Finalists’ Exhibition alongside our New Now auction highlights in our galleries on Berkeley Square this December.”
