Brisbane Art Prize 2017

Presented by Life Art Worldwide

The 2017 Brisbane Art Prize (BAP) returns to the Judy this October for another year featuring an impressive exhibition of local, national and international art. This exciting annual event aims to provide the city of Brisbane with a high calibre art exhibition and award event with maximum impact through audience development and engagement, as well as offering emerging and established artists extensive exposure.

Each year, over 100 artists from across Australia, Asia, New Zealand, USA and Europe are preselected, exhibit and visit Brisbane to attend the BAP exhibition and award event. The preselection process, while inclusive is rigorous, raising the bar for all artists and ensuring a quality, high impact exhibition. In 2017,the panel includes Phil Brown (Arts Editor, the Courier Mail), Christine Lohman (Non-Executive Director) and Bruce Heiser (Heiser Gallery).

BAP is an inclusive arts event, as it is target marketed to emerging artists, artists from diverse backgrounds, regional and remote areas and is an open category award. Art works accepted include: painting, drawing, printmaking photography and sculpture reflecting the topic, “the meaning of life”.

The Brisbane Art Prize to the value of $10 000, will be awarded to the artist the judges have selected at the awards evening #atthejudy in October, while the People’s Choice Award is voted for by the public and the sponsored accommodation at TRYP Hotel will be awarded at the end of the exhibition.

Open to the public, artists will engage with audience through discussion panels and artist talks, all works are for sale, except the BAP awarded work which is acquisitive. Join us #atthejudy for the Brisbane Art Prize this October!
