Chinese artist Zhou Tao has won the first Han Nefkens Foundation-BACC Award for Contemporary Art. 

As part of the award, announced last week, the 37-year-old will spend two to three months in Bangkok and develop an art project for the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre. He will also be given US$3,000 (90,800 baht).

The award was set up by the BACC and the Han Nefkens Foundation to promote young Asian artists aged under 40 years. The award is designed to recognise artists who are known in their community but have not yet established themselves internationally.
