Judges Announced for John Fries Memorial Prize

Tuesday, 5 March 2013

Emerging visual artists across Australia and New Zealand will have the opportunity for their work to be judged by leading figures in the contemporary art world as part of this year’s John Fries Memorial Prize.

Copyright Agency/Viscopy today announced the four judges of the 2013 Prize whose extensive visual arts expertise spans Artbank, the Venice Biennale and contemporary art exhibitions in Australia and internationally.

Dr Daniel Mudie Cunningham, Felicity Fenner, Dr Sanné Mestrom and Kath Fries will have the enviable job of judging some of Australia and New Zealand's most engaging and experimental work from the emerging end of the contemporary art scene.

The John Fries Memorial Prize recognises and celebrates the work of emerging and early career visual artists through a $10,000 non-acquisitive award donated by the Fries family in memory of former Viscopy director and honorary treasurer, John Fries.

Since the Prize was launched in 2010, it has grown to become a significant event in Sydney's cultural and contemporary art calendar.

Entries open 6 March 2013. For more information, visit www.viscopy.org.au/jfmp
