The Incinerator Art Award is the Incinerator Gallery’s annual contemporary art prize inspired by the theme of art for social change.
In light of the profound impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the affect that current global events are having on Australian visual artists we have made some changes to Incinerator Art Award 2020. This year, Incinerator Gallery is offering three prizes totalling $9,000. It is now easier (free) to apply and we are providing significant opportunities for future exhibitions at the gallery in 2021.
Two artists will each receive a $4,000 artist fee and support towards the development and display of a solo exhibition at Incinerator Gallery. These exhibitions seek to provide a professional development opportunity, curatorial advice and marketing support from the Incinerator Gallery team over the course of six months, culminating in a six-week exhibition to commence in June 2021.
A People’s Choice Award of $1,000 will also be awarded to one recipient at the close of the exhibition.
We hope that these exhibitions will strengthen the community, reflecting the nature of Incinerator Art Award by championing art for social change.
Open to all visual art forms, the award welcomes submissions from artists who interrogate contemporary culture with practices that either overtly engage with activism, or that operate in more subtle ways to advocate for social change.
Works will be selected based on their artistic merit and their relationship to the theme of the award; 'Art for Social Change'.
Entries close at midnight, Monday 18 May 2020.
We are planning to open the Incinerator Art Award exhibition on Friday 28 of August, 2020 in the gallery. If this is not possible because of government guidelines regarding social distancing, we intend to hold an online exhibition.
