In these exhibitions, some of Australia’s leading artists – who also happen to surf – play with the imagery and folklore of surf culture, at the same time “taking the piss” and highlighting the humour, irreverence and anarchy that pervades the scene. Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery’s signature program, Still has established itself as one of Australia’s most exciting contemporary art prizes by opening the award to artworks in all mediums. 2017 judge Lisa Slade, Assistant Director of the Art Gallery of South Australia, described Still as ‘a game changer … Still has placed the still life genre at the heart of contemporary art practice. There is a real sense that something new is happening here.” Over $20,000 is offered in prize money and the award is open to artists at all stages of their careers.
