Congratulations to Kate Bohunnis, winner of the $100,000 Ramsay Art Prize 2021, the nation’s most generous prize for Australian artists under forty, with the work 'edges of excess'. Along with this prize, the work is also acquired into the Art Gallery of South Australia's collection, thanks to the generosity of the James & Diana Ramsay Foundation. Open to Australian artists under forty working in any medium, the Ramsay Art Prize has redefined the way we think about art prizes. More than 350 artists under the age of forty submitted entries for the Ramsay Art Prize 2021. These twenty-four finalists have created compelling works of art that probe society today using a variety of mediums. This year’s finalists were selected by a judging panel of contemporary art specialists comprised of Wiradjuri artist Karla Dickens, Dr Daniel Mudie Cunningham, Director of Programs at Carriageworks and Rebecca Evans, Curator of Decorative Arts & Design at AGSA. See the works of all finalists and have your say in the People’s Choice Prize, a non-acquisitive cash prize of $15,000 supported by Lipman Karas.
