Create NSW has announced a new partnership with our Sydney studio, seeking three experienced NSW artists to participate in the Animal Logic Artist in Residence pilot initiative. Minister for the Arts Don Harwin is calling on artists from a wide spectrum of art forms, with each artist receiving a grant of $10,000 to complete their respective three-month residencies.
“This is an exciting idea which provides an opportunity for the chosen artists to cross-pollinate with screen practitioners in the Animal Logic community to develop their experience, explore new ideas and create new works,” Mr Harwin said.
Our team will also host a group exhibition to showcase work created by the artists during their residency. CEO and Co-Founder, Zareh Nalbandian said, “We’re excited to be partnering with Ben Quilty and Create NSW and engaging with our local creative community on this great new initiative.
“At Animal Logic we are committed to supporting emerging and established creative talent. With this residency program we will provide the opportunity for artists to develop their creative practice and gain experience working in a professional studio on their own projects alongside the team here at Animal Logic,” he said.
Visual artist and Animal Logic alumnus Ben Quilty is the Ambassador for the initiative, having worked at Animal Logic early in his career. He has since been awarded the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship, Moran and Archibald Prizes, and an appointment to the board of trustees at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
“There are endless possibilities for dynamic collaborations between ambitious artists and the amazing team at Animal Logic. I’m very excited to be involved,” Mr Quilty said.
