61st Blake Prize: Exploring the Religious and Spiritual in Art

Opened: 17 March 2013
Closed: 28 July 2013

A beautiful complement to the Museum’s permanent exhibitions, the 61st Blake Prize provides a unique and valuable opportunity to reflect on Jewish life in a distinctly Australian, comparative and contemporary context.

Since its inception in 1949, the Blake has provided a remarkable opportunity for contemporary engagement with religion and art, inspiring conversation about the meaning and value of these two elements within everyday life. The Museum has similarly long been synonymous with interpreting, exploring and presenting Jewish religion and spirituality, ritual and tradition, often through an artistic lens.
