The North Sydney Art Prize is a major biennial arts event showcasing some of the best in contemporary art from across Australia.

This year’s exhibition features over 110 artworks to be displayed across the grounds of the historic Coal Loader site.


This transformed industrial site provides a unique backdrop for visitors to experience a broad range of artworks: from immersive, site-specific installations within the atmospheric underground chambers and tunnels, to sculptures dotted throughout the picturesque parklands through to paintings, works on paper and multimedia works displayed in the historic Cottage and workshops.


The 2022 curatorial theme encourages artists to consider the overarching principles of the Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability. In response to the curatorial theme, selected artworks explore sustainability and the environment with many addressing the impacts of climate change and consumerism, as well as responding to the inspiring natural and industrial elements of the site and surrounds.
