Based in Singapore, the Prudential Eye Award has reactivated and redefined the notion of Greater Asia in global time via a selection platform for a new wave of artists originating from countries as diverse as Russia, China, Korea, Japan, Indonesia and Australia. The aim is to create links and bridges between Greater Asia and the UK by moving beyond State power.
