Alice Prize: unpackers pick their winner

What work among the 65 Alice Prize finalists caught the unpackers’ eye? Now we have the answer.

It’s Train, a digital archival print (pictured above), 1.7m wide, by Bronek Kozka from Victoria.

Announcing the unpackers’ choice, a first for the prize, the Alice Springs Art Foundation says this artwork “requires close examination to fully engage with the clever imagery it contains”.

They quote from the artist’s statement:  “. . . this image uses portraiture as a window to examine the aesthetics, the technologies and the people of the future.”
The exhibition opens at Araluen next Friday, May 11.
