Exhibition and Shows

‘the churchie’ returns to the IMA once more in 2020, debuting a new look and new approach.

Since its inception at Anglican Church Grammar School in 1987, the prize has sought to identify and profile the next generation of contemporary artists from across the country. Today it is one of Australia’s leading prizes for emerging artists.

Continuing and expanding on the prize’s rich legacy, the 2020 exhibition will provide a survey of some of the most compelling art being produced by emerging artists in Australia today. The 2020 finalists are: Nathan Beard, Tom Blake, Jessica Bradford, Marina Pumani Brown, Martin George, Yasbelle Kerkow, Guy Louden, Lachlan McKee, Georgia Morgan, Nabilah Nordin, James Nguyen, Emily Parsons-Lord, and Athena Thebus.
