Submissions are now being sought from artists wishing to take part in the 2015 HomeGround program at the Western Plains Cultural Centre (WPCC) in Dubbo. HomeGround (formerly Regional Art Space) provides emerging regional artists with the opportunity to exhibit in a high profile exhibition space, work with a professional curator to extend their practice and to benefit from mentoring sessions on a range of possible areas.
Emerging artists from Regional New South Wales are invited to submit a proposal outlining an exhibition concept. HomeGround are seeking exhibition concepts that have been developed specifically for the program and the WPCC exhibition space. It is therefore requested that the conceived exhibition contain at least 20% new work. Successful applicants will work closely with the WPCC Curatorial team to develop and realise their exhibition.
Western Plains Cultural Centre is a benchmark facility incorporating Dubbo Regional Gallery – The Armati Bequest, Dubbo Regional Museum and Community Arts Centre. The WPCC is the largest centre of its kind in regional New South Wales, with large exhibition spaces, retail area, wet & dry studios, darkroom, research library and meeting rooms. The WPCC provides a unique opportunity to engage with contemporary art and ideas, and regional history and culture, both in practice and theory.
