With its humble beginnings, like the suburb itself, the Chippendale Creative Precinct (CCP) has thrived, matured and is now bursting with possibilities; through an extremely generous, private donation of $100,000 over 10 years, the winner of the Chippendale New World Art Prize will be announced on Tuesday 06 May 2014. Dr. Stanley Quek, Chairman of Frasers Property Australia, has entrusted the CCP to foster the next generation of emerging artists through this exciting initiative.
Each year the prize will take on a new theme in accordance with the process of constructing a new world. The theme for 2014 is Utopia! The beautiful dream of Utopia floats in and out of consciousness whilst we remain in the urban realm, obstructed by chaos boxed in concrete and noise bursting from the neon. Only a brief moment of serenity can be stolen from the cityscape.
The Prize calls upon artists, creative agencies, and students as the new voices of change, asking entrants to be inspired by art’s capacity for urban renewal and to embrace the theme Utopia via their own preception and interpretation in the context of a ‘New World’.
Artists both emerging or established are eligible to apply. All mediums are accepted!
