Housed in the historic gunnery building in Woolloomooloo, Artspace's studio program continues to be one of Australia's most sought after programs for artists.
Premised on an acknowledgement of the necessity of accessible studio spaces in unaffordable Sydney, the program provides curatorial advocacy for the participants, leverages crucial professional development opportunities and lays the foundations for the dynamic relationship between artists and Artspace programs and networks locally and globally.
Each year an Artspace panel selects seven artists/collaborations to benefit from the following 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 in partnership 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.
The 2018 Studio Artists at Artspace are: Eugene Choi, Snack Syndicate (UNSW Art & Design), David Griggs (UNSW Art & Design), Heath Franco (UNSW Art & Design), Cybele Box, Matthew Griffin, Elizabeth Pulie.
Each year Artspace and the particiapting artists host a series of events when visitors can meet the artists and see inside the studios. To stay informed about exhibitions, events and opportunities for artists and arts professionals subscribe or connect to Artspace.
