Congratulations to Yhonnie Scarce who has been awarded the Established Artist and Residency Prize at the 68th Blake Prize!

The Blake Prize is a biennial exhibition that highlights local and international contemporary artists who explore ideas of spirituality and religion through contemporary artworks. The 68th Blake Prize exhibition will be on display at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre from 11 May to 7 July 2024.

The Blake Prize has been challenging artists to explore spirituality and religion through their art since 1951, and Casula Powerhouse has been home to the prize since 2016. Casula Powerhouse is ideally positioned in Liverpool, a community of people from over 150 different birthplaces, speaking over 140 languages with an equally diverse range of faith backgrounds.

The 68th Blake Prize finalists were selected by a panel of judges renowned for their contribution to the discourse of contemporary art and spirituality in Australia. The judges include artist Dean Cross, Director of UNSW Galleries and Curator of the 2024 Adelaide Biennial José Da Silva, and Professor in Religion within the School of Humanities at the University of Sydney Professor Jay Johnston FAHA.
