Check out the 41 finalists for the Chippendale Creative Precinct’s fourth annual art prize, themed this year around ‘spirit’
The Chippendale New World Art Prize is funded by arts philanthropist (and chairman of Frasers Property Australia) Dr Stanley Quek. Its mission is to foster emerging artists across all mediums, and each year the competition takes a different theme.
This year's 41 finalists were selected by a panel comprised of Dr Quek, Wayne Tunnicliffe (head curator of Australian art at the Art Gallery of NSW), collector and philanthropist Pat Corrigan, and internationally acclaimed Australian artist Janet Laurence.
The same panel awarded the 2016 Prize to Indigo Hanlee and Michael Thomas Hill, of design agency Lightwell, for their multi-screen and iPad installation 'Dyeing Breath' (pictured above).
The duo will receive a three-month residency at the Arte Studio Ginestrelle on Mount Subasio in Assisi, Italy, worth $10,000.
