Objectify

OBJECTIFY-2.png

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 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.

Our judges for 2019 include typographer and director of Pocket Design, Brett
Piva, as well as photographer and owner of Lee Illfield Photography, Lee Illfield.

For those who were not able to join us, the prescribed object is a ‘Cocktail Umbrella’. To enter for your chance to win, please fillout and submit a submission form to wattspacegallery@newcastle.edu.aualong with an image of the work/s. The submission form can be found here.

The exhibition will run from 4 – 29 September 2019.
