Presented by fortyfivedownstairs and Future Leaders
fortyfivedownstairs and Future Leaders are inviting submissions from emerging Australian visual artists for the Emerging Artist Award 2018.
With broader selection criteria than ever before, we are looking for artworks that exemplify innovation and originality across a range of media, from cutting-edge artistic practices to new takes on traditional styles.
A selection of works will be chosen for a two-week exhibition from 19-30 June 2018 at fortyfivedownstairs. $3000 of prize money will be awarded by a special guest judge to the two submissions that best align with the award criteria.
The Award is a proven catalyst for ongoing recognition and professional development and allows audiences the privilege of accessing early-career works by exciting young artists.
At fortyfivedownstairs we showcase independent, experimental and thought-provoking visual art. The Emerging Artist Award 2018 is an opportunity to examine developing trends in the contemporary art scene while allowing emerging artists to gain exposure in a professional setting and kick-start their careers.
