Introducing the third annual Parramatta Artists Studios (PAS) presentation at Artspace, part of a four-year partnership that sees the two institutions working collaboratively to further support artists in Western Sydney through curatorial dialogue, mentorship and advocacy.
Current PAS artists Harriet Body, Penelope Cain, Shireen Taweel and Hannah Toohey have worked closely with Artspace curators through a series of studio visits and mentored exchanges over the past three months. This process will culminate in a group exhibition in Artspace’s Ideas Platform, co-curated by Artspace Executive Director Alexie Glass-Kantor, Curator Talia Linz, Curatorial Assistant Lola Pinder and Parramatta Studios Coordinator Sophia Kouyoumdjian.
Each year the PAS exhibition in the Ideas Platform is launched alongside the annual NSW Visual Arts Emerging Fellowship, reflecting the creative synergies of practitioners working across New South Wales.
