The Powerhouse Museum International Lace Award seeks to encourage contemporary design and challenge conventional notions of lace and its application in the areas of fashion, the built environment and digital multimedia. Professional and amateur artists, designers and practitioners around the world are invited to enter for the chance to be exhibited at the Powerhouse Museum and win a share of $40,000 prize money.
The Award defines lace as an openwork structure whose pattern of spaces is as important as the solid areas. Approximately 30 works will be selected for consideration for exhibition in July 2011. The selected entrants will have time to develop their proposed work from May until November 2010.
Expressions of interest close: 29 March 2010 by 5.00pm
