fortyfivedownstairs has presented an annual Emerging Artist Award since 2015. The award brings together the best emerging artists from across Australia each year for a two-week exhibition in the iconic fortyfivedownstairs gallery.

The Award is a proven catalyst for ongoing recognition and professional development and allows audiences the privilege of accessing early-career works by exciting emerging artists.

At fortyfivedownstairs we showcase independent, experimental and thought-provoking visual art. The Emerging Artist Award is an opportunity to examine developing trends in the contemporary art scene while allowing emerging artists to gain exposure in a professional setting and kick-start their careers.

Supported by the City of Melbourne Arts Grants, Future Leaders & The Cuming Bequest
