The Incinerator Art Award is the Gallery’s annual contemporary art prize featuring works by shortlisted artists from across Australia, 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 award will be judged by Kate Just (Artist and Lecturer in Art at the Victorian College of the Arts), Tom Mosby (CEO of the Koorie Heritage Trust) and Madé Spencer-Castle (Curator at Centre for Contemporary Photography). Opening awards ceremony Friday 11 October, 6pm–8pm.
