Two New Exhibitions, Thoughts on Portraiture & Call for Support

Looking toward the first glimmers of life after lockdown, we consider what we can learn from our displays of resilience. In this, we present two exhibitions which celebrate adaptability against strife as well as understanding that, as we move forward, our hope for a stronger future is only possible with your support.
Mapping Our Own Future is a weekly series of virtual exhibitions
curated from Arts Project Australia’s stockroom.

James MacSporran, an emerging artist who has a painting and drawing practice that occasionally expands to collage, was working toward presenting his first solo show since October 2019—finalised in February 2020 and ready to install in March.

Then COVID-19 hit; his work is sitting in the Arts Project stockroom stretched, framed, and ready to install. While his solo is rescheduled for early 2021, we couldn’t wait to share his latest collection with the world.

Love from the Studio is a series of interviews and articles
bringing you behind the scenes of Arts Project Australia.

THE EMINENT FACE: Three of Arts Project’s team explore both the intimate nuances and expansive complexity of portraiture. Within this, they discuss how Arts Project Australia artists continue to ingeniously portray the human face and its infinite multitudes. 

It’s been a rollercoaster ride since COVID19 entered our lives. At APA, we are determined to ride out the tsunami and continue to support artists in their practice and, with your help, emerge a stronger and more resilient organisation in the future.

Your tax-deductible gift will assist us in continuing to support our artists during this isolation period and help develop and grow APA Satellite Arts, our new remote digital delivery program, which we believe could be a gamechanger moving forward. By donating to APA you are supporting an organisation which has always aimed high and continues to advocate for the inclusion of artists with intellectual disabilities in the broader contemporary art sector.
