In August 2017, more than 20 artists from across Australia will converge on the National Art School (NAS) in Sydney and Adelaide Central School of Art (ACSA) to create new, experimental drawings on the walls of both campuses, in an open-to-the-public exchange. There will also be live streams of video from Melbourne and Rome. See the link below.
To realise this ambitious project we need your help!
We are raising $5000 for the project through a crowdfunding campaign.
The artists creating and exhibiting at NAS are: Jonathan McBurnie, Caroline Durre, Susannah Williams, Annelies Jahn, Zhen, Sally Clarke, Polly Joannou, Liz Bradshaw, Sasha Grbich and Roy Ananda.
The artists creating and exhibiting at ACSA are: Daniel Connell, Joe Frost, Sally Parnis, Johnnie Dady, Rob Gutteridge, Margaret Roberts, Ben Denham, Wendy Murray, Yve Thompson, James Dodd, Christopher Orchard and Luke Thurgate
