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 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.
In 2015, Khadim Ali, Nick Dorey, Claire Milledge, Mikala Dwyer, Kelly Doley along with Tim Silver and Hany Armanious, the Australian representative for the 54th Venice Biennale, were recipients of the studios.
Established in 2007, BC Institute is a platform for performative and collaborative contemporary art practice
Forster's practice brings together digital and biological technologies, installation, performance and print to trace the boundaries of logic, economy and the role of the artist in art making.
Ghaemi’s practice adopts themes of secrecy, the unconscious, theatricality and mysticism to create surreal scenarios through real and imagined characters.
Khaled Sabsabi specialises in multimedia and site-specific installations, often involving marginalised cultures and communities.
Raquel Ormella’s practice explores political language and its effects on national identity; and the complex relationship between humans and the natural environment
