Applications now open for Double Exposure artist residency!

Monday, 28 December 2015


Application are now open for Double Exposure, a residency program offering one interstate mid-career artist a nine-month opportunity to produce new work for an exhibition and public program in 2016.

Produced by PhotoAccess in partnership with Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres (AGAC), Double Exposure supports the creation of new and innovative photo-based work. Priority will be given to artists who work experimentally, or who involved (or are wanting to introduce) cross-disciplinary elements, for example performance or installation. The residency aims to introduce one artist to ACT audiences, and to contribute to public awareness of photomedia practice in a national and expanded art context.

The residency runs over the course of nine months (March-November 2016), with seven weeks accommodation provided in Canberra at the Gorman Arts Centre ArtSit, to be apportioned at the artists’ discretion (in consultation with the AGAC). As well as the opportunity to create new work, the artist will participate in three events: an ‘In Conversation’ event, performance or workshop at Gorman Arts Centre, a talk or technical demonstration at PhotoAccess, and a solo exhibition at PhotoAccess in November 2016. The artist will have multiple opportunities to engage with the public, present their practice and exchange ideas with ACT artists and audiences.

The residency includes a stipend of $2,500, a materials allowance of $700, and a total travel budget of up to $1,660 to be provided over the course of the residency.

Applicants must submit an application form including a 1 page proposal for their residency project, a current CV and up to 10 JPEG images of recent work. Application form available here.

Applications close 5pm Wednesday 28th October 2015. Applicants will be notified of the outcome in mid November 2015.

Double Exposure is presented by PhotoAccess,  and supported by Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres and the ACT Government’s 2016 Arts Residencies Program
