Questions about IMPART Art Prize?

We have compiled the most popular questions received over the years in our FAQ


Tan Boon Hui Curatorial Prize

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Tan Boon Hui on 7 July 2022, a prolific figure and trailblazer in Singapore’s art scene who has not only been an advisor to Art Outreach since our inception, but also a dear friend.

Boon Hui served as the Chair of our IMPART Art Prize Jury and Curatorial Advisor for our IMPART Collectors’ Show since 2017, generously dedicating his time and expertise to advocating for local practitioners and cultivating art appreciation in the community.

His visionary leadership also left an indelible mark on the many institutions and museums he helmed across Singapore and the US, where he revitalised a focus on contemporary Asian art and created spaces for performance art practices to thrive.

Boon Hui’s unwavering commitment to championing Asian arts and culture around the world has inspired many, and his dynamic presence will be greatly missed. We thank him for all he has done for the local art scene and for Art Outreach.

In honour and celebration of his legacy, the IMPART Art Prize for Curators will be renamed the "Tan Boon Hui Curatorial Prize".

Being awarded this Prize has been a very kind, generous affirmation of the long-term, researched-based practice and projects that I've been pursuing for the last 12 years. I applied also as a way to get critical feedback on the projects that I've been working on and to seek a new perspective, which I might not have thought of before.
