ARTSPACE ONE YEAR STUDIOS
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 launched 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.
In 2020, Marian Abboud, Seth Birchall, Rainbow Chan, Rochelle Haley, Fiona Lowry, TV Moore, The Re-Right Collective were recipients of the studios.
