Excited to share that I have been selected as a finalist in Hatched: National Graduate Show 2017 at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts. Hatched opens 6 May and continues until 18 June.

The Hatched: National Graduate Show features work by recent arts graduates of the highest calibre from art schools all over the country. With work by 35 graduates carefully selected from 23 tertiary institutions in each of Australia’s states and territories, Hatched 2017 will once again test the pulse of the nation’s emerging arts practices while acting as an important platform for artistic careers.

The selection process for Hatched, now in its 26th year, is a rigorous one. Students are nominated by their art school with the final selection made by an industry panel. This year’s panel was made up of: Madeleine King (Senior Manager, IMA), Georgie Meagher (Artistic Director, Next Wave), Nadia Johnson (Exhibitions Manager, PICA), and Eugenio Viola (Senior Curator, PICA).

“This year’s show represents not only the top tier of artists leaving universities, but also a fascinating diversity of approaches, ideas and practices in contemporary art today.” Madeleine King, Senior Manager at IMA.

For the eighth consecutive year the Schenberg Art Fellowship of $40,000, will be awarded to one exceptional artist as a major investment in their burgeoning career. PICA is pleased to be working with the University of Western Australia and the trustees of the Dr Harold Schenberg bequest on this significant award for emerging artists. The winner will be announced at the opening night celebration.
