The Incinerator Art Award is the Gallery’s annual contemporary art prize of national significance, with entries received from across Australia. The award showcases 33 shortlisted works inspired by the theme of art for social change.

The award pays homage to Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony, who believed that art and architecture practices are ethical enterprises that should aim to bring about positive social change.

The Incinerator Art Award will be judged by Mark Feary (Artistic Director at Gertrude Contemporary), Melissa Keys (Curator at Buxton Contemporary) and Miriam Kelly (Curatorial Manager at Australian Centre for Contemporary Art).

The $10,000 Boathouse award and $3,000 Incinerator Gallery Award will be announced at the exhibition’s opening night. The $1,000 People’s Choice Award will be announced at the exhibition’s conclusion.

The Boathouse is the proud sponsor of the Incinerator Art Award.
