Indigenous Ceramic Art Award 2016

Indigenous Ceramic Art Award 2016

From Monday 4 January, 2016 Shepparton Art Museum will be accepting applications for the Australian Indigenous Ceramic Art Award (ICAA) 2016.

This $20,000 acquisitive prize is open to Indigenous groups and individual artists to propose an exhibition concept to realise at SAM in August 2016. Applications close Tuesday 15 March 2016.

In order to work more closely with the Indigenous community and provide better career development opportunities for Australian artists, the 2016 ICAA will follow the format of other significant Awards such as the Sidney Myer Fund Australia Ceramic Award. To assist artists and arts groups to create a new and dynamic body of proposed work, the five shortlisted applicants will receive $2,600 development fee to help support their new body of work. The exhibition opening and award announcement is due to take place on Saturday 6 August. Accompanying this event, SAM, in partnership with Gallery Kaiela, will host a Cultural Programs weekend on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 August 2016. This program will provide a skills and knowledge exchange opportunity for Indigenous artists from around Australia and regional Victoria.

Established under the patronage of acclaimed artist Dr Gloria Thanakupi Fletcher, this Award celebrates and supports the rich and diverse use of the ceramic medium by Indigenous artists and acknowledges the special industry of ceramic art. As an acquisitive award it contributes to the Art Museum's significant holdings of Australian and International ceramic art.

The ICAA is developed in partnership with the Sir Andrew and Lady Fairley Foundation, Margaret Lawrence Bequest and Mr Allan Myers AO QC and is generously supported by Fairer Futures Fund / Australian Communities Foundation.
