Art exhibition and acquisition program


We support emerging Australian artists through our Art Exhibition and Acquisition Program, established in 2014. The program includes an annual exhibition across our national offices and the Hall & Wilcox Art Prize, which is awarded to one exhibiting artist each year.

The annual exhibition showcases the work of many emerging artists who use a variety of materials and technologies and respond to different cultural contexts through their works and artistic expression. At each exhibition launch – and for the following six to eight weeks – the work is enjoyed and often purchased by our clients, friends and staff. We also acquire an artwork from each exhibition and permanently display those works in our offices nationally.

Expressions of interest invited

We call for expressions of interest from emerging artists to enter the exhibition. Submissions will be reviewed and assessed by Hall & Wilcox’s Art Committee. All artists exhibited are automatically entered into the Art Prize competition.
