The 2 Danks Street Award for Art Criticism has been initiated by the galleries of 2 Danks
Street in conjunction with the prestigious magazine Artist Profile and new online art journal Art for All: All for Art.
The prize of $1,000 will be given to a new talent in arts writing, including an invitation to the winner to be published with the sponsor journals.
The judging panel includes: Candice Bruce – historian, writer and curator, Owen Craven – publisher of Artist Profile,
Pru Gibson – curator, writer and lecturer at COFA,John McDonald – art criticChristopher Hodges, Editor of Art for All: All for Art, and director of Utopia Art Sydney
at 2 Danks Street, believes that quality conversation about contemporary art stimulates both artists and collectors.
‘Online sites are doing a great job of letting us know what is on, but there needs to be a richer debate on how an artwork emerges, with the positives and negatives of an artists’
achievements. We need a contrariness of opinion and provocative analysis about what is happening here in Sydney, NOW. This is ultimately what connects the art public with art and the artist.” Owen Craven, Editor of Artist Profile, responded heartily to the prize: “The art world is settling into the new reality of the post GFC world, and Artist Profile wants to keep its finger on the pulse. Our editorial brief sits squarely with contemporary Australian artists and their engagement with aesthetic and meaning. We are constantly looking for new writers who can bring an unexpected perspective to a particular body of work. Someone who makes us sit up and look with fresh eyes, and excites us about living with great art. I am really looking forward to discovering great new writers.”The competition is open to writers who do not currently receive an income from arts writing. Entrants will be asked to review exhibitions at 2 Danks Street in Sydney, including contemporary art jewellery exhibitions, from June to August. Winner of the prize will be announced on 20 September.
An information pack including entry form is available at http://www.2danksstreet.com.au
