'Making Art Work' new commissions coming soon
Round 2 artists, facilitators & writers
6 July 2020
Since launching the first round of Making Art Work commissions a month ago, we’ve seen Tony Albert topple statues, watched Hannah Gartside lovingly make furballs from her studio, we listened to Mariam Arcilla interview creatives in New York and South Korea, tinkered with homemade instruments with Susan Hawkins, and much more.
The next round of new projects will be produced by: Hannah Brontë, Monika Noémi Correa, Merinda Davies, Julian Day, Ana Paula Estrada, Gordon Hookey, Chantal Fraser, Jenna Lee, Steven Oliver, Sarah Poulgrain, and Angelica Roache-Wilson. These will be launched 10 August 2020 on makingart.work and across different platforms.
Making Art Work proposes an experimental role for the institution as administrators of economic stimulus for artists. Developed in response to the COVID-19 lockdowns, the project aims to reinforce the importance of creative labour in a time when the cultural and economic value of art has been diminished.
Making Art Work is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
