Kudos Offsite: Offsite Art Projects allows you the opportunity to realise a large-scale artwork. Think pop-up installations, events and happenings, projects in historic sites, collaborations with other institutions, galleries, or local businesses.
The Kudos Offsite for the remainder of 2021 will be housed in our new temporary spaces across four sites located at 121, 123, 125 and 178 ANZAC parade, Kensington, on Bidjigal and Gadigal people of the Eora nation.
Kudos is privileged and delighted to have this new temporary space to run a dynamic exhibition and studio program across four spaces for the remainder of the year. Creating a bridge between students at UNSW Art & Design and the broader arts community, Kudos' new space will host a small number of studio residencies, exhibitions, and our beloved Kudos Emerging Awards. We're focusing on what we do best - providing a platform for emerging practitioners, to develop and exhibit their work.
Specifically, the Kudos Committee aims for our new space to be a low-pressure high-support system. Low pressure in that we offer affordable space for artists and students, so that artists have the freedom to experiment and make work that is less commercial; and high support in creating an environment that’s collaborative, inspiring, non-judgmental and safe. We propose the space to work towards a circular ecology in that practitioners all collectively contribute to the space in small ways for the common goal of facilitating such a space.
Kudos is opening call outs for studio artists, October and November, and artist EOIs for the committee's August exhibition. Kudos will also open our call out for Kudos Emerging Awards in the coming months, to be exhibited in September. We also have a general call out for volunteers who would like to contribute to this space by helping out with minding, install, de-install, public programs– no skills necessary - we can teach and help you!
