Basil Sellers Art Prize
The Basil Sellers Art Prize offers artists and viewers an opportunity to engage with the broad range of issues and ideas that sport can provoke. The Basil Sellers Art Prize is open to entries in any style and in a broad range of media including photography, film, painting and sculpture. Entries are shortlisted, and successful artists have the opportunity to develop their work over twelve months for a major exhibition held over two levels at the Ian Potter Museum of Art.
The $100,000 prize was established in 2008 and will be awarded biennially until 2016. It is awarded to a single work of art, which then becomes part of Basil Sellers’s collection, and is complemented by a $5,000 People’s Choice award. Previous prizes have been awarded to Daniel Crooks for Static no. 11 (man running) (2008), and Tarryn Gill and Pilar Mata Dupont for Gymnasium (2010). The third Basil Sellers Art Prize was awarded to Jon Campbell for Dream team (2012).
The closing date for entries to the fourth Basil Sellers Art Prize is Friday 21 June 2013. The BSAP4 exhibition will be presented at the Potter from July to November 2014.
