The prestigious John Stringer Prize – created in 2015 in honour of acclaimed curator, the late John Stringer (1945–2007) – commissions six contemporary Western Australian artists to create new work from which the winning artist will be determined by a secret ballot conducted by The Collectors Club members.

This year they were selected by an independent selection panel consisting of Chris Malcolm, Director, John Curtin Gallery; Dr Laetitia Wilson, Exhibitions Manager, Janet Holmes à Court Collection and Nathan Giles, Executive Director, Perth Public Art Foundation.

The exhibition features new work created specifically for the Prize by the six artists who work in a range of media including drawing, painting, photography, installation and textiles.
