Announcing 2015 Emerging Writers

Alex Martinis Roe, Free Associations, 2010.

Gertrude Contemporary is pleased to announce the participants in the 2015 Emerging Writers Program:

- Chelsea Hopper will be mentored by Grace McQuilten
- Sarinah Masukor will be mentored by Jan Bryant
- Amelia WinataJack WilletJeremy EatonTara CookJon Dale and Audrey Schmidt will be mentored by Rex Butler

2015 marks the tenth anniversary of Gertrude Contemporary's Emerging Writers Program. The Program provides a unique opportunity for emerging visual arts writers nation-wide to develop their writing practice, publish their work, and gain further insight into the field of contemporary art writing through a year-long mentorship with an established art historian, curator or writer.

This year Gertrude has renovated its Emerging Writers Program to be more adaptive to the specific skills, strengths and style of its Emerging Writers. As in previous years, applicants selected for the Program will be paired with a mentor for a period of one year. With their mentors’ help, Emerging Writers will produce two pieces of professional writing for publication, one of which will be a Studio 12 catalogue essay. Moreover, Gertrude has diversified its partner organisations so that Emerging Writers can publish their work in a forum most appropriate to their ambitions. The 2015 partner organisations include, but are not limited to: eyelineunMagazineDisciplineWest Space Journal,VaultDissectRealtime, Canvas on FBI Radio, and No Brow on 4ZZZ Radio.
