About the Gold Art Prize
The Gold Art Prize, administered by art advisor Kelly Huang of KCH Advisory and Gold House, is a first-of-its-kind biennial award that spotlights the achievements of five contemporary Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) or Asian diaspora artists. Each awardee receives a $25,000 unrestricted cash prize, sponsored by the Kahng Foundation. Awardees are also included in Gold House Futures, an initiative that gives leading next-generation creatives, entrepreneurs, and social impact leaders opportunities for exposure and mentorship. A catalogue is published for each award cycle, featuring essays and artist interviews, as a means to support and create new scholarship about AAPI and Asian diaspora artists.
