The Chippendale New World Art Prize

Are you ready for this?


The Chippendale Creative Precinct has announced the opening of the 3rd annual Chippendale New World Art Prize and BEAMS Arts Festival for 2015.

Supporting emerging and established contemporary artists, The Chippendale New World Art Prize offers an incredible residency grant to the winner. This year the awarded artist will recieve $10 000 and be invited to partake in a three month residency at the Ionion Centre for Arts and Culture in Greece.

Each year the Art Prize focusses upon a particular angle of a new world. In 2015 artists are called upon to respond to the theme Phenomena. Like the communities that make up Sydney it is an exceptionally multifaceted idea. The Prize challenges creatives and thinkers to expressively investigate and create works that illuminate the multiverse that is Phenomena.

The Art Prize calls upon artists, creative agencies and students as the new voices of change, asking entrants to be inspired by art’s capacity to breathe new life into the urban sphere and embrace the new world of art technologies within their entries.

With a strong judging panel looking for diversity and ingenuity, the judges include Director of the MCA, Elizabeth Ann MacGregor OBE, art critic Andrew Frost, and chairman of Frasers Property Australia, Dr Stanley Quek.

As a passionate patron of the arts, Dr Quek has entrusted the Chippendale Creative Precinct to foster the next generation of emerging artists through this exciting 10 year arts initiative. “Since it’s inception in 2013, the Chippendale New World Art Prize has gone from strength to strength, providing life changing development opportunities and global connections to emerging Australian artists. Submissions to the prize doubled last year and we are expecting an even greater response this year.” Dr Quek sai

The Prize encourages entry in all mediums of art including new or non-conventional technologies, from emerging or established artists.

Finalists will be exhibited at three locations in Chippendale, and the winner announced on opening night at Thursday 9 April NG Art Gallery.

Now stop day dreaming about the sunny skies, and sweeping ocean views of Kelaflonia, Greece and get onto your submissions!

The deadlines are Monday 16 March for the Chippendale New World Art Prize, and Monday 29 June for BEAMS Arts Festival.
