At UNSW Galleries, supporting Australian artists and designers is at the core of all our activities. In recent years, we have seen a contraction in public funding for the arts, and the sector faces increasing obstacles resulting from the global COVID-19 health emergency. Now more than ever, UNSW Galleries is committed to supporting Australian practitioners by investing in the development of new works and supporting the production of ambitious new commissions.
The UNSW Galleries Commissioners Circle provides much-needed funding directly to mid-career artists and designers alongside unprecedented access to facilities at UNSW Art & Design to make and exhibit new works.
The 2021–2023 Commissioners Circle includes six major commissions. Projects will premiere as part of the UNSW Galleries exhibition program and are supported by digital engagement, publishing and touring to ensure their longevity and impact.
In 2020, we are supporting the development of new works by Archie Moore and in January 2021, new works by Elizabeth Pulie premiere as part of a mid-career survey.
