#prizenoprize

WHEN : 2nd - 16th December
WHERE : The Walls

Riding along the undercurrents of Turner Prizes and Archibalds, #PRIZENOPRIZE is an exhibition that champions and democratises art across all media and levels. Think of it as a soft power alternative to the head-churning, nail-biting process that comes with applying for art awards – or being shortlisted for the coveted Bachelor rose of the artworld.

There is no prize money, entry fee or % commission on sales; instead this is an open platform for contemporary and experimental artists (especially emerging artists) across Australia to exhibit/perform at THE WALLS this December — which we think is a prize in itself. We’ll be showcasing a cross-section of works, including multi-disciplinary, projection and moving-image based, performance and large-scale installation works.

Artists: CHASE ARCHER, HAILEY ATKINS, JANIS CLARKE, RICKY LARRY, SOPHIE PENKETHMAN-YOUNG, MELISSA SPRATT, VEOPLE (JAY JERMYN & JULIAN CURRIE)

Curated by Mariam Arcilla

Opening: 2nd December, 5:00 – 8:00pm
