OBJECTIFY

The 2019 Student Art Prize presents works that inject art into an object and an object into art. Objectify challenges practice as a prescribed object becomes subject matter to be interpreted across multiple media.

The Friends of the University of Newcastle are generously sponsoring two Acquisitive Student Art Prizes of $1,000 each. Other major prizes include the $1,500 Penny Finnigan Memorial Prize and the $800 University Art Collection Award.

7 AUGUST- 1 SEPTEMBER 2019
