The 2015 DOMINIK MERSCH GALLERY AWARD has been presented to Yvette Hamilton.
Yvette Hamilton is an Australian artist working in photomedia, video and installation. Her interdisciplinary practice creates work that explores both physical and virtual space through the convention and framework of portraiture.
A collaboration with the Sydney College of the Arts, the DMG award is an annual initiative that aims to support emerging artists. As part of the award, DOMINIK MERSCH GALLERY provides an exhibition space in the gallery to show one or more artists selected from the SCA’s end of year Postgraduate Degree Show.
Dean of SCA, Prof Colin Rhodes says, “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.”
Yvette Hamilton’s award-winning work will be showing at the gallery from 29 January 2015.
