Play On: The Art of Sport


Play On: The art of sport is a selection of key works from the Basil Sellers Art Prize, a former biennial exhibition of new commissions that reflect upon sport and sporting culture. One of Australia’s richest and most prestigious art awards, the Basil Sellers Art Prize inspired innovative and complex explorations of sport from a rollcall of Australia’s most accomplished artists. Play On distils the best of these works into an engaging touring exhibition that gives audiences throughout Australia the opportunity to view familiar sporting concepts through a sometimes surprising lens.

Featuring work by Jon Campbell, Richard Lewer, Shaun Gladwell, Daniel Crooks, Tony Albert, Fiona McMonagle, Tarryn Gill and Pilar Mata Dupont, Lauren Brincat, Gabrielle de Vietri amongst others.

National Exhibitions Touring Support (NETS) Victoria is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and through the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments. NETS Victoria also receives significant in-kind support from the National Gallery of Victoria.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program.
