Visibility, Ritual and Legacy
The Burwood Art Prize invites artists across Sydney to engage, consider and reflect upon one or more of the following themes; Visibility, Ritual and Legacy. Each of these words can be examined and negotiated in a literal, abstract, formal and informal sense.
We encourage you to see these words as lenses through which your art can be perceived by different people in different ways; a portal and invitation to our audiences to explore broader ideas around identity, community, culture and personal experience. Artists are also invited to consider how each of these themes may connect or disconnect with their practice, experience, surroundings or environment.
For 2023, the Art Prize has been opened up to a series of new categories, and will accept works in the following mediums:
•Digital artworks (moving or still)
We are also thrilled to announce that for the first time the Prize will be open to all Sydney-based artists who are Australian citizens or permanent residents. We are asking artists to engage with one or more of the following themes guiding the prize: Visibility, Ritual and Legacy.
