WHAT IS THE ROADSHOW?

The Artbank Roadshow is a national initiative that seeks to provide opportunities for unrepresented artists to be seen and potentially acquired for the Artbank Collection. Artbank recognises that there are finite opportunities for artists to be represented by a commercial dealer. Accordingly, The Artbank Roadshow ensures democracy of access for professional, practising Australian artists who otherwise would have limited opportunities for their work to be seen in this context as they do not currently have a commercial dealer/gallery.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Artbank staff travel to each state to meet with unrepresented artists in short 20 minute appointments. Artists are asked to bring images of their work and discuss their practice. Once all artists have been seen the Artbank team will assess the applicants and make a recommendation to the Artbank Director for acquisition.

SCHEDULE

The Artbank Roadshow travels to each state and territory in Australia. The schedule for 20/21 will be available in late 2019.
