Abstract

The 2011 Indigenous Ceramic Art Award (ICAA) celebrates and supports the rich, vibrant and diverse use of the ceramic medium by Indigenous Australian artists. With a combined prize pool of $33,000 the ICAA is the premier award for Indigenous Australian ceramic artists. This year's award includes work by 18 artists from across Australia: from the Tiwi Islands to the Central Desert region, and from city suburbs to the Torres Strait. The 2011 ICAA also pays tribute to the generosity and achievements of Thapich Dr Gloria Fletcher AO, patron of the ICAA, in an accompanying exhibition of the artist's work from SAM's collection. A program of workshops and talks will accompany the 2011 ICAA exhibition. [Gallery publicity].
