The Incinerator Art Award will be judged by Mark Feary (Artistic Director at Gertrude Contemporary), Melissa Keys (Curator at Buxton Contemporary) and Miriam Kelly (Curatorial Manager at Australian Centre for Contemporary Art).

The $10,000 Boathouse award and $3,000 Incinerator Gallery Award will be announced at the exhibition’s opening night. The $1,000 People’s Choice Award will be announced at the exhibition’s conclusion. 

The Boathouse is the proud sponsor of the Incinerator Art Award.

Works include the tapestries of Joy Smith and her students, contemporary textiles by the students of Bats of Leisure and portraiture by up and coming local photographer Amna Hamid of Studioblkk.

This exhibition has been developed in partnership with Moonee Valley’s Community Development team.

Offsite exhibition projects


The Billboard Project, Niddrie is a series of large format photographic billboards that create unexpected public galleries in and around the Keilor Road Shops in Niddrie.

The locations can be discovered around Wallace Mall, and they connect to the billboard in the front garden of the Incinerator Gallery.

These public sites feature changing exhibitions by some of Melbourne's best contemporary artists. Elvis Richardson, Clare Rae, Zoe Croggon, Petrina Hicks, Mike Read, Genevieve Grieves, Dianne Jones, James Voller and Steven Rhall have all exhibited in these spaces.

The Clocktower Gallery


Voula Christopoulos

29 August – 31 October 

My current work is focused on memories, dreams and the subconscious. The work is an exploration of domestic interior spaces, since the home is where we dream and memories are made. It is also an intimate place, where we can retreat into our own mind space.

The paintings are glimpses of domestic interior spaces and objects that are not fully described. They are both familiar and vague, like a fragmented recollection of a dream or memory.
