The shortlist has been revealed for the 67th Blake Prize and I am delighted to say that my work, “Roadside Memorial” has been selected.
The Blake Prize; one of Australia’s longest running and most prestigious prize, is a biennial event that engages local and international contemporary artists in conversations on the broader experience of spirituality, religion, and belief.
My work will be on show alongside the other finalists at the 67th Blake Prize exhibition from 12 March to 22 May 2022 at the Casula Powerhouse.
“Exploring Australian identity, history and culture is analysed in some of the works, including Ronnie Grammatica’s Roadside Memorial, which looks at the tradition of roadside memorials in Australian culture and asks if they are succeeding traditional commemorative rituals.”
