The judges of the 2017 Ramsay Art Prize are Rhana Devenport, Director, Auckland Art Gallery, contemporary Australian Artist Nell and Leigh Robb, Curator of Contemporary Art, Art Gallery of South Australia.

The panel brings together distinguished international and national contemporary art experts who selected the twenty-one finalists and the winner for 2017.

Nell speaks to what this Prize will mean for artists when she says that ‘this Prize represents a rare combination of opportunities – to be included in a curated exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia; to be acquired into the Gallery’s collection and to receive a major financial reward that will fuel future work. For all the finalists, the very opportunity to be selected for exhibition at the Art Gallery is immeasurable’.
