Incinerator Art Award 2022: Art for Social Change

16 September 2022 - 30 October 2022

Curator:

Artist(s): TBA

Location: Incinerator Galleries

The Incinerator Art Award is our annual art award and exhibition. Established in 2015, the award celebrates contemporary arts practices that are socially engaged, environmentally aware, and seek to enrich community through dynamic, creative practice.

The award pays homage to Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony—the progressive architects who collaboratively designed the Essendon Incinerator in 1929-30—who believed that art and architecture are ethical enterprises that should aim to bring about positive social change.

This nationally recognised award demonstrates the crucial role art plays for contemporary Australian audiences, underpinning Incinerator Gallery as a vital space for engaged discourse through visual art and creative practice.

The award is an inclusive and diverse exhibition that celebrates the vibrancy of community within and beyond Moonee Valley.

In 2022, the Gallery continues to present critical, ambitious and experimental practices, and will offer an engaged and educative program encompassing visual art, film, performance, writing, architecture and design.

 

Entries for the Incinerator Art Award 2022 will open from Sunday 1 – Tuesday 31, May.
