The 2019 Student Art Prize presents works that inject art into an object and an object into art. Objectify challenges practice as a prescribed object becomes subject matter to be interpreted across multiple media.
The Friends of the University are generously sponsoring two Acquisitive Student Art prizes of $1,000 each. Other major prizes include the $1,500 Penny Finnigan Memorial prize and the $800 University Art Collection award.
Our judges for 2019 include typographer and director of Pocket Design, Brett
Piva, as well as photographer and owner of Lovilee Photography, Lee Illfield.
To find out more come to our launch party where we are adding the arty to party and revealing the object at our launch event on Wednesday 19 June 2019 from 6:30pm at Watt Space Gallery. Come and join us for the ultimate reveal, food, entertainment and $5 cocktails.
The exhibition will run from 4 – 29 September 2019.
