Group exhibition: the churchie emerging art prize

October 9, 2021 - December 18, 2021

Courtesy: the artist and Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane.

‘the churchie’ is one of Australia’s leading prizes for emerging artists, offering a prize pool of $25,000 with a $15,000 non-acquisitive Major Prize provided by long-standing sponsor BSPN Architecture.

Presented at the IMA since 2019, the finalists’ exhibition provides a survey of the compelling and diverse work being produced by emerging artists today. The exhibition provides a survey of the pressing artistic concerns of early-career artists from across Australia following a year of extraordinary events. While broad in their conceptual and material concerns, common threads include diasporic experience, First Nations sovereignty, and the political and social conditions of contemporary life.

Curated by artist, writer and curator Grace Herbert in a role sponsored by Armitstead ART Consulting.
