2019 John Fries Award
The John Fries Award is an annual $10,000 non-acquisitive art prize recognising the talents of early career visual artists. Since its humble beginnings in 2010, the Award has established itself as a platform for some of the most engaging and experimental works from the next wave of contemporary artists from across Australia and New Zealand. The prize was established by the Fries family in memory of former Viscopy director and honorary treasurer, John Fries, who made a remarkable contribution to the life and success of the organisation.
Chosen from a wide scope of almost 500 applicants, Nadia Hernàndez was chosen as one of the 10 finalists alongside Madison Bycroft, Betty Chimney and Raylene Walatinna, Dean Cross, David Greenhalgh, Jenna Lee, Hayley Millar-Baker, Elena Papanikolakis, Justine Youssef and The Ryan Sisters. The finalist exhibition There is Fiction in the Spaces Between has been curated by Miriam Kelly.
