City of Hobart Art Prize
The City of Hobart Art Prize has not taken place since 2015. An extensive review was undertaken and on 23 April 2018 the Council endorsed a new model to replace the City of Hobart Art Prize.
The new model, an innovative long-term partnership between the City and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), was launched in February 2019 and the first Creative Director announced.
Expressions of interest from artists who would like to be part of the inaugural Hobart Current exhibition in 2020 are open until 13 May 2019.
Visit the Hobart Current website for more information.
