Darkest Before Dawn is a showcase of work from emerging artists involved in the Front Up Emerge 2018 program, an engagement project developed by Front Up and led by Liam Benson assisted by Rosalind Stanley. Front Up is an arts and culture hub founded by Ability Options, which connects professional artists and emerging practitioners living with disability.

This Ideas Platform project is the culmination of a collaboration between the Art Gallery of NSW, Front Up and Artspace. The six artists involved in the program have worked closely with artist George Tillianakis to develop their practice. This exhibition interrogates and expands on concepts from the Front Up Emerge 2018 program and showcases fresh ideas and processes in the development of new work.
