John Curtin Gallery + John Stringer Prize

Partners of the John Stringer Prize, John Curtin Gallery have hosted the Prize night since 2017. Director Chris Malcolm said the Prize was a highlight of the JCG calendar.

“The Gallery is delighted to once again partner in 2020 with The Collectors Club of Western Australia and the Kerry Stokes Collection to celebrate artists who are making a major impact on the Western Australian art scene.  This year the prize takes on more significance as it enables us to support the arts community during these unprecedented and uncertain times.” Mr Malcolm said.

Prize Coordinator Anna Louise Richardson said “The finalists selected represent a fascinating diversity of media, themes and cultural backgrounds bringing to the attention of the Collectors Club emerging practice as well as outstanding mid-career artists; a selection very much in the spirit of the Prize to recognise outstanding artistic merit within Western Australia”.

The John Stringer Prize is a non-acquisitive, annual award aimed at recognising and supporting outstanding Western Australian visual art practice and is generously supported by The Collectors Club and The Kerry Stokes Collection.
