Opening + Prize Announcement

Join us at the IMA for the opening of the churchie national emerging art prize 2019 finalists’ exhibition and prize announcement.

Since its inception in 1987 at Anglican Church Grammar School, ‘the churchie’ has sought to identify and profile emerging contemporary artists from across Australia.

This year the IMA and ‘the churchie’ have partnered for the first time to present the work of nineteen emerging artists from across Australia. Offering a total prize pool of $25,000, the overall winner receives a non-acquisitive $15,000 cash prize—donated by long-standing sponsor of ‘the churchie’, BSPN Architecture.

Amy Barrett-Lennard, Director of Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, will judge the 2019 prize.

The IMA and ‘the churchie’ are also excited to announce the appointment of Naomi Blacklock as the recipient of the inaugural emerging curator mentorship.
