This autumn, one of the most prestigious art awards in the country will be touring the Gold Coast.
The Basil Sellers Art Prize encourages artists to interpret the theme of sporting culture through their chosen media – be it photography, sculpture, paint or film. In 2012, over 300 artists submitted their work to be considered for the $100,000 prize, and an exhibition of the 15 finalist’s works will arrive at the Arts Centre Gold Coast in February.
Themes explored include Australian sporting history, politics and Indigenous athletes, iconic sporting objects and the athlete as a metaphor for the artist. The work in the exhibit draws inspiration from rugby, tennis, cricket, swimming AFL football and athletics.
Catch this renowned exhibition at the Arts Centre Gold Coast, not far from our Gold Coast accommodation apartments from February 9 - March 31, 2013.
