This year’s finalists include: Cigdem Aydemir, Hayley Millar-Baker, Sheena Colquhoun, Jacquelene Drinkall, Carly Fischer, Rew Hanks, Heather Hesterman, Alana Hunt, Kelly Hussey-Smith and Alan Hill, Thea Jones, Aaron Martin, Mohsen Meysami, Phuong Ngo, Becc Ország, Perdita Phillips, Jacob Raupach, Georgia Robenstone, Paul Trefry, Matthew Vaughan Yandell Walton and Sharon West.<
The award is inspired by the original architects of the Incinerator Gallery, Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony, who believed that art and architecture practices are ethical enterprises that should aim to bring about positive social change.
The opening night will include the announcement of the prize recipients of the $10,000 Boathouse Award and the $3,000 Incinerator Gallery Award. The $1,000 People’s Choice Award will be announced at the exhibition’s conclusion.
