An annual exhibition that profiles new and emerging artists. It explores a broad range of vibrant contemporary art making, from new media and installation to more traditional mediums.
A short list of 35 artists, crossing a broad range of disciplines, have been selected as finalists for the 2018 prize from over 1000 entries.
The 2018 pre-selection panel consisted of Katherine Dionysius (QUT Art Museum Assistant Curator), Dr Chris Bennie (visual artist and lecturer at QCA Griffith University), Leah King-Smith (visual artist and lecturer in the School of Creative Practice QUT), and Vicky Leighton (Head of Art at Churchie).
Katherine Dionysius comments, “One of the great things about this prize is that entries are not restricted by medium or subject matter, and we are excited that the finalists this year represent a diverse cross-section of emerging art practices in Australia. The work includes explorations of culture, identity and the environment - from the playful to the powerful and deeply personal - as well as vibrant investigations into form and colour, and thoughtful meditations on surface and materiality.”
The 2018 prize winners will be determined by guest judge Lisa Havilah, director of Carriageworks, Sydney. The Major Prize and three Commendations will be announced at the official opening of the exhibition, open to the public, at QUT Art Museum on Friday 7 September 6 to 8 pm. The exhibition will remain open until 4 November and will feature artworks from each of the 35 finalists.
