Congratulations to Zoe Wong for taking out The Galeries Emerging Artist Award and to Hana Hoogedeure for winning the People's Choice Award!
Michelle Newton, Deputy Director of Artspace and judge of The Galeries Emerging Artist Award said on Zoe's win-
The quality and scope of the works by this group of five emerging artists made the task of selecting a winner very challenging. All the works were impressive.
Zoe Wong’s photographs were playful and humorous mixing the personal with popular cultural references.
Her works touch on important questions of identity, which are particular pertinent in a contemporary Australian context.
Congratulations to all the artists.
