Jeremy Hynes Award

Since 2009, the IMA has had the honour of presenting the $10,000 prize to an experimental Queensland artist in the earlier stages of their career, made possible by a bequest made by the family of Jeremy Hynes in his name.

Jeremy Hynes was a key figure in the Brisbane art scene in the 1990s, predominantly known for his experimental performance works. Hynes had numerous exhibitions locally and nationally, his exhibition Macro-Surveillance was presented at the IMA in 2000.

The four 2017 shortlisted artists were: Lu Forsberg, Michael CandyNaomi Blacklock, and Elizabeth Willing. The fifth recipient was Lu Forsberg.


We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands where the IMA now stands, and pay respect to Elders, past, present, and emerging.
