Gertrude Contemporary is pleased to announce the incoming artists into the Gertrude Studio Program. An advisory committee consisting of Gertrude staff, a current studio artist, a previous studio artist and an external arts professional recently convened to assess applications for the 2-year studio program. With a commitment to supporting innovative artists at key moments in the development of their practices, and representing a broad expanse of creative practices, the advisory committee has selected the following artists to enter the program in 2019:
Kay Abude, Andrew Atchison, Georgia Banks, Ann Debono, Mikala Dwyer, Jason Phu, Sam George and Lisa Radford, and Joseph Griffiths.
The Gertrude Studio Program has been an integral component of the organization since its founding in 1985. Functioning as a non-university aligned studio complex of 16 artists, the program offers individual studio spaces for artists as well as access to shared workshop facilities, communal social spaces and administrative support. During the course of the artists’ residency at Gertrude, each artist will present a new solo exhibition at Gertrude Glasshouse, participate in two group exhibitions at Gertrude Contemporary, contribute to regular studio crit sessions and be introduced to visiting Australian and international curators, museum directors, gallerists and collectors. The studio program is focussed on providing professional support and enabling creative opportunities for leading artists within a collegiate, community focussed and deeply networked environment.
