The finalists’ exhibition will be launching on March 12th at the multi-disciplinary arts centre, Casula Powerhouse (CPAC), in South West Sydney. Here, you’ll be able to experience the works of all 65 finalists, with art created in every different state and territory in Australia!

The winner of the Blake Prize will also be announced, with the recipient scoring a cool $35,000 for their efforts and a residency at the arts centre.

“This year’s Blake Prize finalists have delivered an incredible range of artworks, from painting, photography, sculpture, installation and digital media works”, comments CPAC Director Craig Donarski. Whether it’s a commentary on human identity, COVID-19, race, or gender, every finalist’s work from the Blake Prize offers something new to the table.

No matter your field of interest, the Blake Prize finalist exhibition is bound to get the cogs turning.
