The works from 36 Australian shortlisted artists for the annual Incinerator Art Award have recently been announced. The gallery’s annual contemporary art prize will present an exhibition of the works that respond to the award’s call to action of ‘art for social change.’
Inspired by the legacy of architect Walter Burley Griffin and his wife Marion Mahony, the Incinerator Art Award has a strong focus on environmentalism and social activism, and looks to reinforce the idea that art can create deep and long lasting social change.
The award will be judged by Dr Vincent Alessi, Senior Lecturer of Creative Arts at La Trobe University, Hannah Mathews, Senior Curator at Monash University Museum of Art and Jason Smith, Director at Geelong Gallery.
Prize recipients of the $10,000 Boathouse Award and the $3,000 Incinerator Gallery Award opening night on Friday, 14 October. The $1,000 People's Choice Award will be announced at the conclusion of the exhibition.
