AUSTRALIA. 2012 Cicely & Colin Rigg Contemporary Design Award
11/04/2013 11:26:44

National Gallery of Victoria:

The Cicely & Colin Rigg Contemporary Design Award is a generous legacy of the late Colin Rigg (1895-1982), a former Secretary of the Felton Bequests' Committee. This ‘Award of Excellence’ focuses on contemporary design practice in the state of Victoria and is a reflection of the NGV’s continuing support for and commitment to contemporary design. It is arguably the richest and most prestigious prize ever offered to a contemporary designer in Australia, with a prize of $30,000. Held every three years, each exhibition is devoted to a particular design discipline. The past five exhibitions, in 1994, 1997, 2003, 2006, and 2009 represented ceramics, metalwork, textiles, jewellery and furniture design respectively. In 2012 the exhibition is dedicated to vessels and the notion of containment.
The Cicely & Colin Rigg Contemporary Design Award is generously supported by the Cicely & Colin Rigg Bequest, managed by ANZ Trustees. 
The National Gallery of Victoria congratulates Marian Hosking as the recipient of the 2012 Cicely & Colin Rigg Contemporary Design Award for her work Clearing.
