“Administered by Federation University Australia, in partnership with the Art Gallery of Ballarat the Guirguis New Art Prize (GNAP) is generously sponsored by local surgeon and philanthropist, Mr Mark Guirguis.
In its fourth iteration, GNAP19 promises to inspire and surprise audiences with a bold mix and unique snapshot of Australian art created by artists selected from the Northern Territory, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.
Reflecting a myriad of historical and contemporary influences, artists explore ideas ranging from Australian cultural and social history, self-portraiture, identity and transformation, to a humorous perspective on skullduggery and office culture and theories surrounding the fourth dimension, expressed through diverse media including sculpture, video, painting, textiles, ceramics and installation.
GNAP19 is presented at FedUni’s Post Office Gallery and the Art Gallery of Ballarat.”
