“The works from 36 Australian shortlisted artists for the annual Incinerator Art Award have recently been announced. The gallery’s annual contemporary art prize will present an exhibition of the works that respond to the award’s call to action of ‘art for social change.’
Inspired by the legacy of architect Walter Burley Griffin and his wife Marion Mahony, the Incinerator Art Award has a strong focus on environmentalism and social activism, and looks to reinforce the idea that art can create deep and long lasting social change…” *
