Riding along the undercurrents of Turner Prizes, Archibalds and the like, #PRIZENOPRIZE is an exhibition that will champion and democratise art across all media and levels. Think of it as a soft power alternative to the head-churning, nail-biting process that comes with applying for art awards and being shortlisted for the coveted Bachelor rose of the artworld. There is no award money for #PRIZENOPRIZE. Instead this is an open platform for contemporary and experimental artists (especially emerging artists) across Australia to exhibit at THE WALLS this November — which we think is a prize in itself.
Based in Miami, Gold Coast, THE WALLS serve as a hub of creative practice, critical dialogue and innovative thinking around contemporary art. Since 2013 THE WALLS has developed a permanent exhibition platform that has become an essential destination for contemporary art and cultural experience on the Gold Coast. Their annual program focus is monthly curated exhibitions, local artist in residence program, event series, artist talks, publications and off-site projects.
