NETS Victoria Board of Management have announced the 2018 successful applicants of a $10,000 grant to get their exhibitions and projects up on the road.
“We had a fantastic number of submissions this year from both public art galleries and independent curators – all with great ideas!” NETS Victoria Director Mardi Nowak
The Exhibition Development Fund (EDF) program supports the Victorian arts sector with grants of up to $10,000 to Victorian arts organisations and curators who wish to develop new exhibitions and projects of contemporary art, craft or design with the aim to tour.
The successful applicants are:
Centre of Contemporary Photography to assist with engagement programs for Simon Terrill Crowd Theory. These include a reunion of original participants from over 10 years ago to revisit the work.
TarraWarra Museum of Art to engage independent curator Hetti Perkins to research and develop a new touring exhibition, presenting the work of leading female Indigenous artists Yhonnie Scarce and Judy Watson.
Arts Project Australia to engage artist and curator Catherine Bell to develop a touring exhibition featuring female artists from Arts Project Australia alongside leading contemporary female artists. The exhibition will investigate ideas of feminism and disability.
The Exhibition Development Fund has previously assisted projects throughout Victoria including the highly successful exhibition touring Slipstitch from Ararat Gallery TAMA and current exhibition I Hope You Get This: Raquel Ormella by the team at Shepparton Art Museum.
The 2019 Exhibition Development Fund will open late February 2019. For more information, contact NETS Victoria.
