"I chose to be the artist in residence at the Royal Melbourne Hospital for personal as well as professional reasons...". Gilbee here shares her experiences as an emerging artist, the potentials and limitations which come hand in hand with being a self-employed practitioner and her journey into the communal space of the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
Editorial for the issue 'Emerging Artists' (Vol 17 #4). The term 'emerging artist' is a red herring of a funding category in suggesting that the needs of emerging artists are so different from those of emerged artists. Like overnight sensations in film or theatre, emerging visual artists may be many years in the gestation.

Exhibiting or working in the public space provides opportunities and challenges for emerging artists not available in the gallery system. This article outlines Malone's personal understandings of the three distinct aspects of public space art activity: I Exhibiting in the Public Space, II Public Artwork and III Design of the Public Space. Public art and design contribute to making art more visible in the community and broaden the definition of art practice.
Looks at two exhibitions 'Perspecta 1997: Between Art and Nature' at the Art Gallery of New South Wales curated by Victoria Lynn and 'Primavera: The Belinda Jackson Exhibition of Young Artists' curated by Rea at the Museum of Contemporary Art, in the context of assisting young and emerging artists.
Artplace is exlusively committed to Western Australian artists. The work of emerging artists is shown side by side with that of prominent artists in regular changing mixed exhibitions...Artplace shows aboriginal art as part of contemporary WA art and the gallery has a strong emphasis on giving talented artists their first solo show.
Imagine art without gatekeepers - no curators, no reviewers, no bureaurcrats. Emerging artists would no longer kowtow to the standards of a few curators in order to have their work seen. Audiences would no longer depend on the tastes of a select group of critics to determine which exhibition they should visit....the prospect of a transparent art world is in fact a mere extrapolation of current trends.
Looks at the work of Samantha Lau, Megan Jones and Josie Bri-Haines. These works take us away from the populated cityscapes to other lands, other planets and in some senses to a state of rest. Their premise is our worship of the sun, planets and stars.
The work of Justene Williams and Tony Schwensen. William's photographs are taken spontaneously, and sometimes surreptitiously, with disposable cameras. Schwensen's installations combine paintings and sculptures to embody an idea of suburbia.
