It is with deep disappointment Brisbane Powerhouse has made the very difficult decision not to proceed with the MELT: Portrait Prize Exhibition as planned in 2020.
This was not a decision made lightly but one that reflects the rapidly unfolding COVID-19 situation and the unpredictable nature of the coming months.
The health, safety and wellbeing of artists, staff and patrons remains at the forefront of our mind as we make this decision.
MELT Portrait Prize has developed a reputation for attracting exceptional works of art from across Australia and is a much-loved inclusion on Brisbane Powerhouse’s calendar.
The program shines a spotlight on LGBTIQ+ culture, promoting visibility and inclusivity among the community and sharing compelling and engaging stories with Brisbane.
While we face an unknown future, Brisbane Powerhouse can assure artists, patrons and the broader community that MELT: Portrait Prize Exhibition will return in 2021.
NOTE: the MELT Portrait Prize exhibition was originally programmed to run from 15 May 2020 – 28 June 2020
