This exhibition was the second annual Parramatta Artists Studios (PAS) presentation at Artspace, part of a four-year partnership that sees the two institutions working collaboratively to further support artists in Western Sydney through curatorial dialogue, mentorship and advocacy.
Development of this project included a series of studio visits and mentored exchanges between Artspace curators and PAS artists over the course of three months. The culminating group exhibition in Artspace’s Ideas Platform was co-curated by Artspace Executive Director Alexie Glass-Kantor, Curator Talia Linz, Curatorial Assistant Lola Pinder and Parramatta Studios Coordinator Sophia Kouyoumdjian.
Each year the PAS exhibition in the Ideas Platform is launched alongside the annual NSW Visual Arts Fellowship (Emerging), reflecting the creative synergies of practitioners working across New South Wales.
Artists: Emma Fielden, Mehwish Iqbal, Anna McMahon, Nadia Odlum and Salote Tawale
