Join Linden New Art and BLINDSIDE galleries to discuss artist residences in conversation with artist Sam Leach and Pippa Dickson, Director, Asialink Arts.
In this professional development workshop suitable for practicing artists, you will learn about the different opportunities available for residencies and how to choose the one that suits you best.
Dr Pippa Dickson is the Director of Asialink Arts where she is committed to facilitating true partnership and cooperation between Australia and Asia in the arts and creative industry sectors. Pippa has extensive arts leadership experience both nationally and internationally. In addition to positions as the Director of the National Association for Visual Artists (NAVA) and Co-Chair of the National Craft Initiative, Pippa founded Design Island for Arts Tasmania and is the founding CEO of the Glenorchy Art & Sculpture Park. She is an International Advisor to the Cheongju Craft Biennale and has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Western Australia and a Bachelor of Fine Arts and PhD from the University of Tasmania.
Sam Leach’s works are informed by art history, science, and philosophy. He combines the poles of the metaphorical and the empirical, the analogous and the objective, in an ongoing investigation of the relationship between humans and animals. In 2015, Sam Leach was featured in Time Space Existence, a collateral event of the Venice Biennale, and a major monograph with essays by Andrew Frost and esteemed fiction writer Tim Winton. In the same year, he completed an Art OMI Australia Committee Fellowship Residency in New York. In 2010, Leach won both Wynne and Archibald Prizes at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, and he was a finalist for the Royal Bank of Scotland Emerging Artist Award in 2009. His work has been extensively exhibited nationally and internationally. He has completed artist residencies in China and the U.S. and is about the head off the Copenhagen.
