Here and Now 13
Exploring the world from a unique viewpoint, Here and Now 13 will showcase the best West Australian contemporary art created by people with disability. This exhibition will be the culmination of work produced over a 12-month mentorship for participating artists. The project is a partnership between DADAA, the Department of Culture and the Arts (DCA), the Disability Services Commission (DSC), Fremantle Arts Centre, Perth Institute for Contemporary Arts, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) and the League Artists Natural Design (LAND) Studio and Gallery in New York.
opportunities for individual artists with disability
Here and Now 13 is an exciting opportunity for 15 Western Australian artists with disability to participate in a year-long program of mentorship and professional development under the guidance of a curator. Artists will display their work in a prestigious exhibition that will be held at the Lawrence Wilson Gallery – located at The University of Western Australia – from 27 July to 28 September 2013.
The project is seeking outstanding Western Australian artists from a diverse range of mediums and outlooks that have the skills and the desire to grow and elevate their arts practice over a 12-month period. Commencing in August 2012, it is an exciting opportunity to develop professionally and to obtain new skills. As part of the initiative, DADAA will be providing $500 towards materials for each artist, along with the 12-month mentorship. The curator will be trained in New York at MOMA and at LAND.
Studio spaces will also be available at Centreal TAFE, Perth Institute of Contemporary Art (PICA) and Fremantle Art Centre (FAC) for short periods of time during the mentorship.
