THINGS OF INTEREST
———————-


The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia opened its doors in March to great public acclaim as a bold new museum for contemporary art and creative learning. With new galleries, enhanced facilities for the public and dedicated facilities for our education programs, the possibilities that the new MCA offers are almost endless. The expanded facilities provide us with the opportunity to meet the increasing interest in contemporary art and the ever growing demand for our programs. With the building complete, it’s now time to focus back on the art and delivering our ground breaking programs.

Occupying 40% of the new wing, the National Centre for Creative Learning is a dynamic and innovative space for learning. The centre is equipped with state-of-the art technology and holds digital and multimedia studios, two practical creative studios, a lecture theatre, seminar room and library. It also houses the Bella Room, a multi-sensory learning and exhibition space for the MCA’s Bella program.

The Bella Program offers workshops to young people who have little or no access to museums and cultural institutions. These children may be experiencing physical, intellectual, emotional or behavioural disabilities, or are disadvantaged due to their financial, social or geographic situation.

The MCA is dedicated to creating accessibility to contemporary art for all and the Bella Program is a vital part of this mission. The Bella workshops were initiated by patrons Cynthia Jackson AM and the late Dr Edward Jackson AM in 1993 and the new facilities give the MCA the opportunity to run this program year round. However, more workshops mean we need to raise more money to fund the program.

Our Annual Appeal this year is therefore focused on the Bella Program – to provide free workshops throughout the year to these very special young people.

Donating to the MCA Annual Appeal is easy and all donations are tax deductible, just click on the link https://app.etapestry.com/bbphosted/nl_mca/OnlineDonation.html. If you have any questions about supporting the MCA please call Lisa Hamilton, Philanthropy Manager on 02 9245 2414 or email development@mca.com.au. I hope you can support this incredible program. With best wishes,

Elizabeth Ann Macgregor  OBE Director

OF LIGHT – Call for Artists! CALL FOR EXHIBITION PROPOSALS: (invite your artistic friends & lovers to the event!)

YOLK Collective invites emerging artists of a range of mediums to submit proposals for our group exhibition ‘OF LIGHT’ before June 6th 2012.

The General Public, particularly tertiary students and graduates, are encouraged to apply. Collaborative projects are also welcomed. Unfettered by medium, we are open to artists working within a variety of disciplines, traditional to experimental.

Exhibition details: ‘OF LIGHT’ will be the debut exhibition curated and mediated by the newly formed YOLK Collective. It is an exhibition centered on manipulations of light, luminosity and electricity. This is a broad theme encompassing works that conceptualise notions of light, and explore visual elements of contrast and chiaroscuro, while also encompassing works using lights or mediums of a luminescent nature.

To accompany the exhibition YOLK Collective will provide an extensive catalogue/magazine at the expense of the Collective to highlight the artists exhibited and other written components we have created. This will be freely distributed around Sydney.

The exhibition will be held at ‘The Barn’ in Mosman at the cost of the Collective over the duration of three days (13-15 July 2012). We are limited to the space and hanging devices at the location. There will be an opening event that will also be the launch of the Collective.

Who are YOLK Collective?

YOLK Collective is a not-for-profit collective comprised of three Art Theory students from COFA.
YOLK Collective’s objective is to create opportunities and editorial for emerging artists.
