The .M Contemporary Young Artist Initiative program is proud to present the BresicWhitney Emerging Artists Award. The BresicWhitney Emerging Artist Award supports newly graduated emerging artists with the annual YAI exhibition at .M Contemporary.
YAI was founded in 2013 as an annual initiative that encourages and promotes newly graduated artists from UNSW Art and Design, The National Art School and Sydney College of the Arts. The exhibition gives selected artists the opportunity to exhibit their work in a commercial gallery, sell their work to collectors they are featured in the annual YAI artist catalogue and eligible for the prestigious BresicWhitney Emerging Artist Award.
This year the emerging artist award will consist of price money of $5000 for the winning artist and $2000 for a highly commended artist. The exhibition will incorporate twenty artists from a wide range of disciplines, which include photography, video, painting, printmaking, installation and performance art.
