The Aesthetica Art Prize attracts a vast number of entrants, how are the works curated together into one cohesive narrative? What is the thread that binds them together?

Griselda Goldsbrough, Curator of the Prize, will speak about the works on display, and how they are chosen to excite and engage audiences on many levels.
