"Call for Artists: 2002 Contempora Fellowship Award for Australian Visual Arts"
2002-05-29 until 2002-06-07
National Gallery of Victoria
Melbourne, VI, AU Australia

A new fellowship award for Australian visual artists will be offered at the Ian Potter Centre in the National Gallery of Victoria's new home in Federation Square, Minister for the Arts Mary Delahunty, said earlier this month. Ms Delahunty said the $100,000 Contempora Fellowship will comprise an intellectual residency of two years duration at the NGV and a touring exhibition of works created by the Fellow during this time.

"The Fellow will also act as an ambassador for the Gallery and travel to regional galleries to assist with outreach programs associated with the Fellowship and contemporary art," she said.

"This is part of the Bracks Government's commitment to increasing accessibility to the arts for all Victorians."

The selected artist will undertake a more an extensive program over a two-year period which will expand awareness and interest in contemporary art throughout the community, she said.

The Fellow will effectively become an associate of the NGV and will participate in cultural forums and public programs at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia.

"This is an opportunity for a talented artist to work in the newest and surely the most exciting arts gallery in the country," she said.

"A highlight of the fellowship will be the exhibition of the artist's work at NGV Australia in late 2003, to be followed by a tour to two regional galleries and a possible interstate show."

Ms Delahunty said the Fellow would be appointed in July this year with their Fellowship to conclude in July 2004.

The prize is open to Australian visual artists. Artists in all disciplines are eligible to enter. Nomination forms are available on the NGV website www.ngv.vic.gov.au/contempora or by calling the Exhibitions Co-ordinator on 9208 0280. Nominations close on 7 June 2002.

"This Fellowship is an excellent and prestigious opportunity for an Australian contemporary artist to significantly expand their horizons, and promote their art to the broader community with the support of the NGV," she said.
