"Artists are given over a year to prepare their exhibition" continues Moran. "This gives time for ideas to expand and mature, and gives artists the opportunity to work with the full expertise of the museum."
Whether you have applied before, or its your first time, the museum team encourages you to consider applying this year. Applications are welcome from artists in the Riverina Murray & North East Victorian regions.
"There is no greater joy for us than to know that we helped an artist lift their practice and produce an exhibition that not only makes them proud, but moves and excites our audience. That collaborative effort is the difference. It's the professional experience and support artists need, right in their home region." concludes Pickering.
Anyone interested in applying for the Open Call are invited to a relaxed information session on Wednesday 16 March at 6pm, at MAMA, hosted by Michael Moran.
