After the outrageous success of CAPO’s first Emerging Artists’ Prize exhibition, we simply had to do this again!

Last December, we awarded the CAPO Curatorial Internships for 2016 to Oscar Capezio and Gemma Pike at the ANU Graduation Night.

Since then, they have been developing the Emerging Artists’ Prize exhibition that will be on show at M16 Artspace from May 26th to June 12th. This year’s exhibition is REVERB. It examines the interplay of artistic convention and resistance in the practices of seven emerging artists. In the words of Gemma and Oscar, the show “highlights the active dialogue happening between artistic mediums, insisting that we expand our assumptions of what might constitute a painting, a sculpture, or a practice of craft. Audiences can expect to find paintings slipping off the wall and onto the floor, sculptures imitating images, and form showing complete disregard for function.”


The artists featured in REVERB are Ned Bott, Christopher Dalzell, Hannah Gason, Hilary Hanrahan, Sanne Koelemij, Jacob Potter and Fiona Veikkanen. REVERB will open on Thursday, 26th May and this year’s winner will be announced on the night. You can see REVERB during M16 Artspace’s opening hours, which are 12-5 pm, Wednesday through Sunday until 12th June.
