DMG Award

The DOMINIK MERSCH GALLERY AWARD is an annual award in collaboration with the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) in Melbourne. As part of the award, Dominik Mersch Gallery provides the winning artist from VCA with a solo exhibition at the gallery.

To select the winner, Dominik Mersch attends the Masters postgraduate exhibition and works closely with the VCA. “Offering an exhibition space to show their works is the best way to support emerging and promising artists,” says Mersch. VCA Director Professor Jon Cattapan has said of the award, “The Dominik Mersch Gallery Art Award sees a Masters student afforded the incredible opportunity to have their work exhibited in a solo show at the Dominik Mersch Gallery. This is a most significant award for a student, presenting them with the opportunity to test their work in a critical and professional environment.”

The DMG / VCA Award was previously the DMG / Sydney College of the Arts Award from 2009 to 2016
