Chippendale New World Art Prize 2014 - Utopia
About The Prize
The Chippendale New World Art Prize represents the advent of a new world where art spreads across all arenas to create new possibilities. Chippendale has undergone a tremendous transformation from its humble beginnings as an industrial suburb to what is now a landscape of creative ventures spanning contemporary art galleries to cutting-edge visual technologies.
The Chippendale New World Art Prize stems from a personal donation of $100,000 by arts philanthropist and Chairman of Frasers Property Australia, Dr Stanley Quek. Over the ten years from its inception in 2013, this Art Prize fosters excellence for all creative individuals and agencies, working in formal or informal fields of practice.
The Chippendale New World Art Prize winner will receive a $10,000 residency grant in an exciting location to be announced shortly. In addition, the winner will receive the exclusive opportunity for a solo exhibition at NG Art Gallery, Chippendale in 2015.
Each year the Art Prize takes on a theme relating to a different facet of a new world. The theme for 2014 is Utopia, perhaps the most glittering facet of any new world, that idyllic place of our greatest optimistic imaginations. Refer to the Creative Brief for more information.
