Seppelt Contemporary Art Awards 1999

Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA)

Duration

09 Nov 1999 to 21 Feb 2000

Curators: Sue Cramer & Ihor Holubizky

About the exhibition

The Seppelt Contemporary Art Awards 1999 was the third and final Seppelt Award exhibition at the MCA. Presented and devised by the MCA, the award sought to recognise excellence and innovation in contemporary Australian and New Zealand visual art and design, while encouraging debate and discussion on the two nations’ developing contemporary arts and culture.

The three categories in 1999 were environmental design, object design and visual art. These broadly defined categories covered a wide spectrum of visual practice, from installation and photography, to architecture and landscape design, to fashion and crafted objects.

The MCA selected 25 nominators for each of the three categories, based on their broad understanding of recent work within a particular discipline, and their commitment to artistic excellence and creative innovation. They were each then requested to nominate up to seven artists or practitioners. The jury reviewed all nominees and selected three winners from each category. The work of all nine winners was then exhibited at the MCA.

Winners:

Object Design: Gina Matchitt, Peter Prasil, Vixen (Georgia Chapman and Meredith Rowe)

Environmental Design: Lyons, Kerstin Thompson Architects, Wood/Marsh Architecture

Visual Art: Mutlu Çerkez, Jacqueline Fraser, Narelle Jubelin
