PROXIMITY 2019 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 2019 Margaret Olley National Art School Drawing Week, which is the school's warm-up to start of semester.
These artists are Fergus Berney-Gibson, Emily Ebbs, Jessamine Elsarky, Chelsea Fuentes, Emma Hornby, Lucy King, Bella La Spina, Tao Liu, Marita Port, Wendy Miller, Carina Capone, Lilliana Rixon, Babette Robertson, Anoushka J. Solomon, Katie Stewart, Anna Tierney amd Nina Walton. Images of their work will be added as work progresses.
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 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 2019 workshop participants plan 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 we invite 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.
