Congratulations to Jo Chew, which has been selected as a finalist in the prestigious Churchie National Emerging Art Prize.
Since its inaugural prize in 1987, The Churchie Emerging Art Prize, or ‘the churchie’, is know as one of Australia’s leading prizes for emerging artists, identifying rising artistic talent nationally.
The finalists’ exhibition, provides a survey of the compelling and diverse work being produced by early-career artists today. Finalists are selected based on the strength of their practice rather than a single piece. This year’s finalists represent a broad spread of artistic concerns and mediums spanning painting, textiles, video, drawing and installation.
Finalists will have their work exhibited at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane 30 July–1 October 2022, with the prize announcement taking place at the gallery Friday 2 September.
The Major Prize Winner will receive a non-acquisitive $15,000 cash prize.
