The John Fries Award 2016 exhibition features work by a diverse array of 14 emerging artists selected from nearly one thousand entries.
The annual John Fries Award presents new and experimental works by emerging artists from across Australia and New Zealand. Since the awards and associated exhibition were established in 2010, it has become a platform and launching pad for early career visual artists.
This year’s exhibition has been described as “brave and confronting, playful and surprising”.
The finalists are: Uri Auerbach, Tim Gregory, James Nguyen, Angela Tiatia, Barbara Moore, Lilly Morton, Sam Clague, Daniel McKewen, Sarah Poulgrain, Jessie Bullivant, Eric Demetriou, Xanthe Dobbie, Jake Preval and Debbie Symons.
The 2016 winner will be announced at opening night reception.
