CLASSIFY ME calls for students to respond to the notion of classifying art. Whether they are traditional landscape painters or new media installation artists, we want to know if the artists think art should be classified and how they classify themselves or their artwork.
This year the total prize money is at $3350. The major prize is a travelling scholarship of $1500 plus three Highly Commended Awards of $500 each and an Impetus Award of $350.
This year artists Cash Brown, Alicia King and Jason Wing have been asked to judge Classify Me.
Cash is a contemporary artist and curator based in Sydney; she has been a finalist in the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize and in 2006 won the Sydney Olympic Park Authority residency.
Alicia is a Tasmanian interdisciplinary artist who combines science and art. In 2009 she was a recipient of a Tasmanian Artists Residency Grant, and she recently returned from residencies in Paris and the Galapagos Islands.
Jason is also a Sydney based contemporary artist. In 2009 he was a finalist for both the Bank of Scotland Emerging Art Prize and the NSW Parliament Indigenous Art Prize.
