A.R.P EXHIBITON OPENING 24TH NOVEMBER IN THE ROCKS.
PUT THE DATE IN YOUR DIARY!
A.R.P has new artists in residence creating works for the November exhibition.
Go to the ‘Current Artists’ tab to read more.
Follow A.R.P on facebook and twitter. Links under “Contact”
A.R.P is an artists residency program established to support artists with a
diversity of contemporary art form practices. A.R.P offers Sydney artists
support for their practice by providing affordable, centrally located studio spaces.
Artists are able to create work in the areas where they live and work. A.R.P offers a
professional support network including promotion and exhibition of Sydney contemporary art.
A.R.P would like to find a permanent home for the program and currently functions as a
roving program finding buildings and spaces for artists to make their work. The program
addresses the shortage of affordable space for artists in Sydney, retaining and nurturing
local talent, and creating a better city for contemporary art to be created in and enjoyed.
A.R.P was housed last year in a vacant industrial building on Cockatoo Island,
Sydney Harbour and received great feeedback. A.R.P for 2011 has found a home
within the Rocks precinct as part of The Rocks Pop Up Project, where arts organisations
are supported with affordable rent in vacant buildings.
A.R.P offers studio space to established and emerging artists alike creating a stimulating
interaction between artists. Artists are offered open plan studios to develop work and exhibit
in various satellite locations at the completion of the residency period. All applicants need
to have the capacity to work in a shared space with other artists and be committed to working
in an active studio environment.
