MARIA FERNANDA CARDOSO has been selected to participate in this year’s Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize in partnership with the National Art School in Sydney. Cardoso’s new photograph of a tiny jumping spider will be exhibited in the Art Prize, alongside 21 other works by leading Australian contemporary artists. Each leading artist has selected an emerging artist to also participate in the show, allowing for a dynamic exhibition with a Major Prize of $25,000 sponsored by Konica Minolta and an Emerging Artist Prize of $10,000. The two winning artworks will be acquired in the Redlands teaching collection.
The exhibition runs from 26 March – 23 May at the NAS Gallery and opens on Wednesday 25 March at 6pm.
