Shane Nicholas selected as finalist for ‘Art for Social Change’ Incinerator Award

October 3, 2018

Shane Nicholas is a finalist in the Incinerator Gallery’s annual award ‘Art for Social Change’ with his 3D-printed sculpture ‘Scanned figure with arms outstretched’. The Incinerator Art Award is inspired by architects Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony, who believed that art and architecture are ethical enterprises that should aim to bring about positive social change. Shane’s work is about the reflexive relationship that technology shares with humanity, using data scanners to produce flawed, organic forms that echo the fundamental contradictions and limitations of this technology. The artist recently completed his Master of Fine Arts by research at the Victorian College of the Arts, for which he received the Peter Redlich Memorial Art Prize.

The award recipients will be announced on the exhibition’s opening night on Friday 12 October and the exhibition itself will continue until 25 November 2018, showcasing the works of 35 short-listed artists.
