Ali Tahayori

27 May - 23 Jun 2024

Visibility, Ritual and Legacy
The Burwood Art Prize invited artists across Sydney to engage, consider, and reflect upon one or more of the following themes: Visibility, Ritual, Legacy. Each theme can be examined and negotiated in a literal, abstract, formal and informal sense.
Artists were encouraged to see these themes as lenses through which their art can be perceived by different people in different ways. A portal and invitation for our audiences to explore broader ideas around identity, community, culture and personal experience. Artists are also invited to consider how each of these themes may connect or disconnect with their personal practice, experience, surroundings or environment.
This year Council is celebrating 150 years since the formation of the Burwood Municipality. We will explore the themes of visibility, ritual and legacy through our public programs, which accompany the Burwood Art Prize finalist exhibition. As we reflect on our past, present and future, we invite you to reflect on how these themes have shaped you.
