The North Sydney Art Prize is a major biennial art event showcasing some of the best in contemporary art by emerging, mid-career and established artists from across Australia. Artists are invited to submit entries for the exhibition which will be held in The Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability in Waverton NSW from 11 May – 2 June 2024. This unique site enables broad participation and accommodates the inclusion of all mediums including 2D, 3D, installation-based works and site specific work.
Finalist artworks will be displayed in the underground tunnels and chambers and other locations across the site.
The curatorial theme encourages artists to consider the overarching principles of the exhibition site at The Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability. The Coal Loader Centre opened in 2011 as a major regional community resource and was transformed from an old industrial site to a place where you can be inspired by best-practice sustainable technology, community gardens, native bush nurseries and regenerated parklands. The Coal Loader showcases innovation and serves as a community hub for Council’s extensive range of environmental and sustainability programs. Located within the bushland of Balls Head Reserve and adjacent to historic Berrys Bay, The Coal Loader is a site of both remarkable industrial heritage and environmental sustainability.
