Available for order online July 2016.
I am deeply touched that one of my artist-run profiles has appeared in this ten year anthology, a review of the NEW series organised by ACCA.
Here is my INTERVIEWS archive copy excerpt fyi:
un Feature: NEW05
Nothing beats a memorable event. The Australian art world calendar has too few. Primavera at the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Samstag scholarship and even the good old-fashioned Archibald Prize media circus spring to mind. NEW – the annual Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) exhibition – is the latest to join the gaggle. According to ACCA the series serves to illuminate the latest, the best, the most outstanding new artists (and new works) and afford them an all too rare opportunity of furthering their professional creative development. Sounds promising. Sadly this year’s selection of works for NEW05 begs the question – new for whom?
