Congratulations to Shevaun Wright who has been selected as a finalist for the John Fries Awards 2020.

The John Fries Award is an annual $10,000 non-acquisitive art prize recognising the talents of early career visual artists.

The winner of the award will be announced on 25 September 2020 at the UNSW Galleries, kicking off a month-long exhibition from 25 September to 21 November.

Since its humble beginnings in 2010, the Award has established itself as a platform for some of the most engaging and experimental works from the next wave of contemporary artists from across Australia and New Zealand.

We are thrilled to announce that the National Gallery of Victoria will be acquiring 5 works from one of our represented artists, Atong Atem. The works to be acquired are from her 2015 Studio Series. From this organisation, Atong’s works will become an integral part of the NGV Contemporary Australian Collection and be toured, or leased, to a large-scale network of regional and metropolitan galleries all across Victoria.

MARS is excited to present work by Josh Muir to coincide with his current exhibition at NGV Australia, 'Josh Muir Animated'.

We are currently exhibiting a new body of work in the downstairs gallery. The full catalogue is now available to view online. 

We are delighted to be featured in 'EZ Australia: The Art of Contemporary Luxury Magazine.' The article, ‘Art Lives on MARS’ elaborates on ADA Consulting’s decade long experience in Public Art. As culture consultants, we are seeing now more than ever that public art commissions are underpinned with cultural narratives connected to a strong sense of place and community.
