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.
