Ellen José Art Award for young women


Ellen José Art Award for young women

2 Jul 2022 - 28 Aug 2022

The Ellen José Art Award is a $15,000 non-acquisitive triennial award designed to support young female artists in the early stages of their career. The award is held in honour of Ellen José, a pioneering indigenous artist, radical activist and social justice campaigner who lived in the Bayside suburb of Black Rock for over 20 years. Managed by Bayside Gallery, the Ellen José Art Award is a partnership between the Ellen José Memorial Foundation and Bayside City Council.

Ambitious and ground-breaking, the six finalists are Moorina Bonini (VIC), Elham Eshraghian-Haakansson (WA), Nadia Hernández (NSW),  Hannah Gartside (VIC), Annika Romeyn (ACT) and Emma Singer (SA). The award will be judged by Professor Marcia Langton AO and Max Delany from an exhibition showcasing new and recent work by the finalists.
