Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize
The Konica Minolta Art Prize returns for its 17th year at the National Art School this month.
Having established itself as one of the more respected contemporary art prizes in Australia and New Zealand, the KMAP focuses on fostering relationships between different generations of artists through its unique design.
Each year the curator, who this year is the 2008 winner and respected artist Julie Rrap, nominates a number of established artists, who will then nominate their own emerging artist to exhibit alongside them. Past winners include Ben Quilty, with respected artists Callum Morton, TV Moore and Judith Wright exhibiting this year.
One of the judges for the prize this year is Edmund Capon, with the prize money totalling at $36,000. The artists will work across a range of different mediums including installation and video pieces.
A very impressive art prize that is sure to produce some fabulous pieces.
