In a World of Wounds (installation view), curated by 2018 emerging curator Talia Smith

Artbank opened an exhibition space as part of the development of its headquarters in Waterloo in 2014. Since then, a number of curated exhibitions have been undertaken by internal and external curators as a means to unpack the richness of the Artbank collection – providing points of access, exploring narratives in individual and bodies of work.

Exhibitions at Artbank are slightly different from other cultural institutions. One of the main ways Artbank utilises its collection is through an art leasing program that engages government, corporate and private clients with the work of Australian artists. Exhibitions are considered with this in mind and ‘evolve’ over the life an exhibition as works are rented from the walls and ‘understudies’ are hung in their place. This results in a dynamic and ever-changing show that allows a curator to consider their concepts in a less static manner.

Applications for the current round are closed and a new round will be announced shortly.

The successful project will be exhibited in the Artbank Gallery in Sydney from 28 November 2019 to 28 February 2020.

Applications for this year’s program are now closed.
