Studio tour: Tony Albert, Natalya Hughes, Jason Wing
Go behind the scenes with contemporary artists
Join Contempo as we explore a studio jam-packed with contemporary artists! It’s a very exciting group consisting of Tony Albert, Natalya Hughes, Jason Wing, Alair Pambegan and honours students Megan Hayes, Finn Marchant and Nicholas Shearer.
The group will throw open the doors to their amazing warehouse studio so you can go behind the scenes to get to know their work and practice. Individually these artists are well known as contemporary and emerging superstars with their reputations going from strength to strength. Over a glass of wine and nibbles, hear from the artists themselves about how they interact within this studio space and influence each other. You might even be lucky enough to buy a work for yourself.
Tony Albert recently won the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award with his beautiful photographic work examining how Aboriginal people are treated differently on a day to day basis titled We Can Be Heroes.
Natalya Hughes creates highly detailed and brightly patterned works that use decorative art techniques to explore feminist themes.
Jason Wing started as a street artist and now works across mediums to make works that are brilliantly clever in unveiling truths about our society. He has also been nominated for this years Parliament of New South Wales Aboriginal Art Prize with his Black Label work.
Alair Pambegan uses the studio as his Sydney base to create his stunning works in ochre and charcoal that are clearly influenced by his Aurukun home.
Megan Hayes, Finn Marchant and Nicholas Shearer are all currently honours students at UTS and were featured in First Draft’s Woolloomooloo relaunch exhibition Life is hard earlier in the year.
