Keep your eyes on the no-prize! #PRIZENOPRIZE returns for a second year.
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're keen to showcase a cross-section of works, including cross-disciplinary, projection and moving-image based, performance and large-scale installation works.
Post a sample of your work (image, sound, text or moving image) to Instagram and tag @thewallsgc and hashtag #PRIZENOPRIZE. In the caption, add your Artwork Title, Year, Medium, Size/ Duration, followed by your Artist Name, Location, and Website or Instagram handle. Alternatively you can email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org or DM us on Insta like a secret squirrel.
We will announce the finalists on Instagram and The Walls website on Friday 17 November. If you are selected, we’ll tag you on Instagram and get in touch shortly after to discuss your participation in the show.
The not-so-fine print:
*Artists much be over the age of 16 and a resident of Australia
*Works on paper and photographs must be framed for exhibition purposes
*All works must be delivered to THE WALLS for exhibition by 29 November
*THE WALLS will cover the cost of returning the artworks by freight where necessary
*THE WALLS has limited resources - you may need to provide appropriate equipment for the presentation of new media works. Please consider this when applying
*THE WALLS and guest curator's decisions are final
**By participating in #PRIZENOPRIZE, you agree to THE WALLS recording and reproducing images and video footage of your artwork for promotional and documentation purposes. Work will always be credited, and, where possible, we will tag you on social media.
