JOHN STRINGER PRIZE
7 October – 4 December 2022
The John Stringer Prize was inaugurated by The Collectors Club in 2015 in celebration of the memory of one of Australia’s most acclaimed art curators, the late John Stringer. A long-term friend and mentor to its members, he established The Collectors Club in Perth in 1996 to promote informed collecting and patronage of Western Australian art. The John Stringer Prize strives to continue his important legacy and since 2018, the John Curtin Gallery has been proud to present this annual exhibition celebrating artists making a major impact on contemporary practice in Western Australia.
Each year, a panel of three leading arts professionals are tasked with selecting six Western Australian-based contemporary artists whose practices they deem worthy of recognition. The panellists for this year’s prize were: Helen Carroll, Manager, Wesfarmers Arts; Jane Chambers, Revealed curator, Fremantle Art Centre and Sarah Wall, curator, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art (PICA). The six artists are invited to produce a new artwork in any medium for inclusion in the exhibition. In the months leading up to the Prize, members of The Collectors Club visit each of the nominated artists’ studios and intimately come to know their work. Club members then vote at this exhibition by way of secret ballot to decide on the Prize recipient.
John Stringer Prize 2022 finalists are: Amanda Bell, Bruno Booth, Jacky Cheng, Guy Louden, Katie West and Holly Yoshida.
