Artbank Roadshow – May 2019 – Calling Unrepresented Artists

The City of Joondalup is proud to announce that it has been selected by national arts organisation Artbank to be their Western Australian co-presenting partner for the Artbank Roadshow. Artbank is a Federal government initiative that supports Australian contemporary visual artists by collecting their work and loaning it to individuals, companies and governments, including diplomatic locations in seventy countries. The Artbank collection amounts to 10,000 works and the agency regularly scours the nation for new acquisitions by partnering with organisations that actively support contemporary visual art practice in each State. The Artbank Roadshow team will visit the Joondalup Art Gallery in May 2019 to meet unrepresented artists and consider their work for acquisition. For further details, please visit the Artbank website.
