ANNA MCMAHON is the winner of the DMG AWARD 2016 in collaboration with Sydney College of the Arts.
The DMG Award is an annual award in collaboration with the University of Sydney – Sydney College of the Arts. As part of the award, DOMINIK MERSCH GALLERY provides an exhibition space in the gallery to show one or more artists from Sydney College of the Arts. A panel selects the artist from SCA’s end of year Postgraduate Degree Show. “Offering an exhibition space to show their works, is the best way to support young and promising artists” says Dominik Mersch. According to best practice in Europe and the USA, such awards are very important to give young artists a head start.
Dean of SCA, Prof Colin Rhodes said, “This is a great collaboration between one of Sydney’s top contemporary galleries and one of the country’s best art schools. It gives an opportunity for one of our best to reach a wide, appreciative audience
