Launch Pad

Dear Graduating Students in the BFA and MFA,

Having a good artist biography is a centrally important piece of information that is core to grant, gallery and residency applications.

As part of our ongoing Launch Pad professional development program we are giving you the opportunity to have your artist biography professionally edited in a one-on-one session.

We have assembled an incredible group of professional editors and writers including; Gina Fairley (Arts Hub), Chloé Wolifson, (Independent Curator and Writer) and Sharne Wolff (Sydney Morning Herald) who will be available for half-hour consultations from 10–12 October. All you need to bring is a 100-150 word artist biography on a USB to your session.

Biography Week
When: Tuesday 10, Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 October, 10am–4pm
Where: Seminar Room, Building 11

Applications Now Open for 2018 Artspace One Year Studio Program, Due 1 November



Since 2015, Artspace has provided Studios Free for Artists: year-long, rent-free studios that support artists to develop new work and methodologies in an open and critically-engaged environment.

This program is part of a 10-year vision to support 70 artists across generations — from emerging to established, and across all media — to embrace risk and experimentation in their practice.

Artspace is the only Australian organisation to provide free long-term artists’ studios, supported by an unparalleled partnership with UNSW Art & Design which, as well as providing access to its leading research and production facilities, generates connectivity and curatorial dialogue through our jointly presented International Visiting Curators Program.

Each year a panel comprised of Artspace staff and Board selects seven artists to take residence for one year. Selection for the studio program will be made in November, and announced publicly on 9 December at the 2017 Artspace Finissage.
