ARTSPACE STUDIOS | FREE FOR ARTISTS
Beginning in February 2015 the Artspace non-residential studio program will be free for artists.
The relaunch of the Artspace studio program as free, bolstered by curatorial advocacy, acknowledges the necessity for a studio program in Sydney that offers space for artists to create new work and involvement in a program that leverages crucial professional development opportunities. It lays the foundations for a more dynamic relationship between artists and Artspace programs and networks.
Each year an Artspace panel will select seven artists to benefit from the following organisational resources: substantial studio space to undertake ambitious projects; engaged feedback and dialogue from a dedicated Artspace Program Curator; introductions to networks through the Artspace Visiting Curators program launching in March 2015 with UNSW Art & Design; opportunities to meet audiences through participation in public programs and open studios; commissioning of original online content such as interviews and artist profiles; connections to our community of peers, collaborators and supporters – locally, nationally and internationally. Artspace is also pleased to announce a further partnership with UNSW Art & Design to provide our resident studio artists with access to their state of the art Paddington campus facilities.
Applications are open to artists of all ages, working in any medium. Studio artists will be in residence from February to December 2015. Strong applications will demonstrate the availability for regular occupation of the studio and participation in Artspace programs. The announcement of successful artists will occur in December 2014.
Applications Due: Monday 10 November, midnight.
