Bronwyn Johnson to hand over the CEO reins of the Melbourne Art Foundation

The Board of the Melbourne Art Foundation (MAF) yesterday announced their current CEO
and Director of the Melbourne Art Fair, Bronwyn Johnson resigned on
16 August and that a search is underway for her successor.

In thanking Bronwyn for her 16 years with the Foundation, MAF chairman Bill
Nuttall said “Bronwyn has been the driving force at the Foundation.
We have benefited from her rare combination of artistic, administrative and
commercial skills, strategic vision with a sincere appreciation and interest
in contemporary visual art.

“She has made a singular contribution to the art world of Australia, assisting
artists and galleries and the art community in general. Bronwyn has built
the Melbourne Art Fair from almost scratch after taking over the Australian
Contemporary Art Fair in 1995. Her drive and commitment to the visual arts
and assisting the livelihoods of living artists has led to the Melbourne Art Fair
becoming one of Australiaʼs major events for the visual arts and Melbourneʼs
pre-eminent art weekʼ.

“In recent years, she has added significant programming to the art fair,
including keynote lectures, an education space, project rooms for the independent art
sector and the Melbourne Art Fair Commission. Also, the introduction of the
Melbourne Art Foundation Awards for the arts is her inspiration.
We have had four awards to exemplary visionaries and artists, most recently to Mark
and Eva Besen and Fiona Hall at a recent dinner held at the Art Gallery of NSW.

“I recall hiring Bronwyn in 1995 as a young woman with a strong reputation as an arts
administrator having worked with John Truscott at the Melbourne Festival and being involved
in the Melbourne performing arts scene for many years. Her transition to the visual
arts sector has been a boon to us having grown it so successfully.
I hope she will remain connected to the visual arts in Australia. But her skills,
drive and vision will be of great benefit to whoever is lucky enough to have her
work with them in the future.

“While we are disappointed that Bronwyn is leaving, we fully understand that
after 16 years itʼs more than fair for her to explore the next phase of her career.
The Board very much appreciate her decision to allow a lengthy period for an orderly
transition to a new chief executive.”

Copyright Agency Limited launches Artlike competition on Facebook
Copyright Agency Limited (CAL), a leading Australian rights management organisation,
today announced the launch of Artlike,
an art appreciation initiative using social media platform, Facebook.

Artlike is an art competition run through CAL’s Artists’ Resale Royalty Facebook page –
where budding artists can submit their work to CAL for posting on the page,
with the winner chosen by the amount of ‘Likes’ received.
Since June 2010, CAL has played a larger role in the visual arts sector after being
selected to manage the artists’ resale royalty scheme on behalf of the Australian government.

CAL’s Visual Arts Manager, Tristan Chant, explains that Artlike is designed to help CAL
engage with the arts scene by providing the platform for artists to reach broader audiences.
‘Exposure is something up and coming artists cannot do without. And while the traditional
means of getting people to see your art won’t be going anywhere fast, digital media is
opening up more opportunities for the young artist to make a name for themselves,’ says Tristan.

Tristan says the competition will effectively use Facebook’s existing functionality to give
artists an opportunity to show their talents. ‘Artists are realising the value of social media
in showing others what they can do. They can test the waters with their works
before going the whole hog in an exhibition.’
The winning artwork will be published in the print and electronic editions of Calendar
– CAL’s quarterly magazine along with a short profile of the artist, which will be sent to
over 15,000 creators all over Australia. CAL will be running this competition periodically
every three months to coincide with Calendar’s quarterly publishing schedule.

‘Artlike offers participants considerable exposure, as well as the added benefit of review
from their peers. From CAL’s perspective, we hope that the additional traffic to our
Resale Royalty Facebook page,
will help to spread the word about the royalties being paid to artists under the artists’
resale royalty scheme,’ Tristan adds.
To find out more about Artlike or to download the application please click

Please read and agree to all Terms and Conditions before entering.
