People Reached

The ART X Prize, currently titled The Access Bank ART X Prize, is the number one prize for emerging artists in Nigeria, created to bolster the efforts of emerging artists who have demonstrated a commitment to careers as professional visual artists. In the absence of infrastructure that exists in other international centres for contemporary art, the Prize was launched to contribute to the burgeoning contemporary art sector in Nigeria. 

The Access Bank ART X Prize is sponsored by Access Bank, in partnership with the British Council & Gasworks.
