This year’s submissions for the annual Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize will officially open until to June 30, 2017. William Grant & Sons hosts the coveted art competition for a third year in Australia.
The competition is open to all Australian artists using any art medium, including but not limited to print, photography, animation, performance and installation. The winning artist will use the residency to create work taking inspiration from the characteristic location, history, heritage, people and craftsmanship of the Glenfiddich Distillery.
An exhibition of the five finalists work, along with a Glenfiddich pop-up bar, will take place at Sydney Contemporary, Australasia’s premier international art fair hosted at Carriageworks from 7 to 10 September 2017.
The artists in residence program has seen over 100 artists from 18 different countries take part in the summer residency program to date. Over the past 16 years the residency has become widely commended in the art world for its contemporary and supportive approach to art, which has seen artists producing incredible and diverse works which are finally exhibited in the Glenfiddich gallery.
Guests attending the Glenfiddich pop-bar at Sydney Contemporary Art Fair can also join the Glenfiddich Explorers Program – offering numerous benefits to whisky enthusiasts – and vote for their favourite piece of art. All Glenfiddich Explorers will then go into the running to win an exclusive collection of whiskies from the Glenfiddich range.
