Hall & Wilcox is delighted to partner with RMIT to showcase and celebrate the works of RMIT students and graduates at the firm’s next Emerging Artists exhibition in Melbourne.
With its national Art Exhibition and Acquisition Program deferred during 2020 because of COVID-19, Hall & Wilcox’s first Melbourne exhibition will be held in April 2021 in conjunction with the RMIT School of Art and RMIT INTERSECT.
Students currently enrolled in a Masters program or BA (Honours) program at the RMIT School of Art are eligible to express interest in participating. Expressions of interest will be received until Friday, 30 October 2020.
RMIT INTERSECT and the Hall & Wilcox Art Committee will review the EOIs and select five to eight artists to feature at the exhibition, held in Hall & Wilcox’s Melbourne office in the Rialto Tower.
One work from this exhibition will be acquired by Hall & Wilcox. It will be displayed at the firm’s client spaces throughout 2021 and will be entered as a finalist in the 2021 Hall & Wilcox Art Prize.
Art Prize Finalists will be selected from exhibitions held in 2021 at the firm’s offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle and Brisbane.
Hall & Wilcox partner and Art Committee Chair Ana Forster said the partnership offered a great opportunity for budding artists to reach a wider audience.
‘2020 hasn’t been a great year for our Emerging Artists program but 2021 holds enormous promise. We are delighted to work on this collaboration with one of Australia’s leading art schools,’ she said.
‘We are really excited to be working towards this exhibition with Hall & Wilcox,’ said School of Art Associate Dean Dr Kristen Sharp.
