What’s Emerge?

Emerge is a Front Up program, supported by Ability Options, focused on delivering programs for practicing artists with disability.

The Emerge 2018 artists meet weekly at the Front Up Hub in Seven Hills to develop their practice through creative workshops in response to Art Gallery of NSW works and exhibitions. In particular, the group has spent time with the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes 2018 exhibition and Spacemakers and Roomshakers: installations from the collection. The artists also participated in Panel discussion: Anarchy in Time facilitated by Liam Benson, followed by a spotlight talk by Suba Bale about the Ernesto Neto work Just like drops in time, nothing from 2002.
