Overview

New Dimensions is delivered in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) to support the ongoing professional practice of visual arts practitioners in NSW.

An established artist will:

  1. undertake a self-directed professional development program or a significant opportunity to support their personal creative practice and career advancement.
  2. work with the MCA to develop a project appropriate to their practice. This may involve the commissioning of a new project or work (including in the areas of performance, online and other ephemeral practices) either for the MCA Collection, for presentation in the MCA building, as part of an external MCA program such as C3West, or as part of MCA learning and public programs; or it may take the form of a residency or other MCA-related program activity. The outline of this project – including timeline for its realisation – will be developed between the artist and MCA staff after the awarding of the Fellowship and be subject to a separate agreement between the artist and the MCA.
