The 30 artists are Annette Peterson, Bjoern Rainer-Adamson, Britt Mikkelsen, Bruce and Nicole Slatter, Bruno Booth, Caspar Fairhall, Christophe Canato, Desmond Mah, Di Cubitt, Dushong, Elmari Steyn, Fiona Gavino, Harrison See, Jessee Lee Johns, Jurek Wybraniec, Kelsey Ashe, Kieron Broadhurst, Leanne Bray, Lindsay Harris, Liz Gray, Lucille Martin, Mandy White, Marla Bishop, Nathan Beard, Ron Nyisztor, Ross Potter, Shaun Wake-Mazey, Susanna Castleden and Toni Wilkinson.
The selection presents an interesting and diverse exhibition and is a representation of current practice. The selected artists work across a range of mediums – many of them working across two or three disciplines – including painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, design, sculpture, installation, film / video, textiles, and mixed media. The exhibition will be held in October 2021 hosted by the venue sponsor, Westfield Whitford City. From the exhibition, one artist will win the prize of $25,000 and the City will acquire their work for the City of Joondalup Art Collection.
