About the exhibition

The inaugural MCA Seppelt Contemporary Art Award recognised excellence and innovation in contemporary art from Australia and New Zealand. In 1997 the Award exclusively focused on visual art, however the Award expanded to encompass design and architecture in later years.

The Award was established to promote discussion and debate about contemporary art, recognising artists who had produced an outstanding body of work that had been exhibited in the previous two years.

The jurors for the Seppelt Contemporary Art Awards 1997 were Gary Dufour, Juliana Engberg, John McCormack, Robyn McKenzie, convened and chaired by the then MCA Director Leon Paroissien.

This exhibition was presented by Seppelt Wines.
