PROXIMITY 2021 open on the weekend

Opening Saturday 27 February 1-5 pm 

Open 27-28 Feb- 11am - 5pm

PROXIMITY 2021 will show the work of artists who are currently students of the National Art School who have selected this workshop as part of their participation in the  NAS Margaret Olley Drawing Week 2021 which is the school's warm-up to start of semester. 

Participating artists  are Mariam Abbas, Mischa Byrne, Frankie, Angelique King, Luna Gui, Dan Heslop, Em Ingram-Shute, Lyla Dushas, Aaron McGarry, Brandon McGee, Molly, Jillian Nalty, Mik Pastore, Sari Walker-Woods, Fergus Ward and Grace Won.

This workshop encourages students to develop a sensitivity to their immediate environment, and to engage with the building and general location in which they work. They will be supported by Articulate artist-directors, Margaret Roberts and Emma Wise to use the space as a project space, in which artwork is developed in the space in which it will be shown. PROXIMITY 2021 workshop participants will work in the space for 4 days, and then open it to the public for the weekend.

Project space work is one of the processes Articulate invites artists to engage in when participating in the Articulate program generally. While many artists show exhibitions of artwork made elsewhere, the project space project program has been devised for artists who want to experiment spatially by devising and/or developing the work in the space in which it is to be shown.  This is the model for the  PROXIMITY workshops.
