Substation Contemporary Art Prize

Metro a proud sponsor of the Substation Contemporary Art Prize

The Substation is a not-for-profit community-based arts organisation in the inner west of Melbourne, located a short walk from Newport Station. The Substation aims to present a unique brand of programming that seamlessly brings together innovative community-based projects, as well as the best of national and international contemporary artists.

The Substation Contemporary Art Prize encourages and recognises innovation in contemporary art practice. The prize is a non–acquisitive $10,000 cash award for Australian resident artists, proudly sponsored by Metro.

The show represents a major survey of the current spectrum of contemporary art practice. See the exhibition at the Substation, 1 Market Street Newport, from 8 September to 8 October 2016.
